You need a NEW MIND to follow Jesus Christ
You need to be BORN AGAIN to follow Jesus Christ and to SEE the kingdom of God, you cannot just CHANGE YOUR MIND. You need a NEW MIND. Most believers were not born again, they still have a SINFUL MIND, a WORLDLY MIND and that is why they keep on sinning and they love the things of the world. We need a NEW MIND. We need the MIND OF CHRIST and we must ask Jesus to give us that NEW MIND, to RENEW our mind, not just to change it because that which is CORRUPT cannot be changed to be acceptable to God.
We read in Romans chapter 12:1 The apostle Paul writes: "I urge you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and a holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and PERFECT."
That is why believers say that they cannot stop sinning, they have a sinful mind, they have a corrupt mind, the mind of the world. We need that NEW MIND, the MIND OF CHRIST. I f we still love the world and think like the world then we have a corrupt mind and we cannot do different because our mind is rotten, we need a NEW MIND, the MIND OF CHRIST.
We need to REPENT, TURN AWAY from what we were and what we did. We have got to hate it and ask Jesus for a new mind, we must embrace that NEW MIND, the MIND OF CHRIST and present ourselves, our MIND SOUL AND BODY to Jesus Christ as a Holy sacrifice to serve Him in PERFECTION. We have to be PERFECT like He is PERFECT. Jesus Christ gives us a PERFECT MIND, the MIND OF CHRIST and therefor if we follow Him we will be PERFECT as He commanded us to be.
May Jesus bless you.
