Proverbs 4:23 TEV
Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life.

Spirit – Soul – Body
You Are A Spirit
You Process A Soul
You Live In A Body

 

You Are A Spirit
Was Saved – Past
Ephesian 2:8 (Blood)

Soul
You Are “Being” Saved By The Word
Present Tense
Ephesians 5:26 (Washing)

Body
Will Be Saved by Resurrection
Will Be Saved – Future
Romans 8:23-24

Truth #1
Every Truth (Information) Comes With
The Need of Mind Renewal (Transformation)

John 8:32 MSG
“Then you will experience for yourselves the truth, and the truth will free you.”

It’s Not Information, It’s Transformation

Ephesians 4:17-24 NLT
17 With the Lord’s authority I say this: Live no longer as the Gentiles do, for they are hopelessly confused. 18 Their minds are full of darkness; they wander far from the life God gives because they have closed their minds and hardened their hearts against him. 19 They have no sense of shame. They live for lustful pleasure and eagerly practice every kind of impurity.
20 But that isn’t what you learned about Christ. 21 Since you have heard about Jesus and have learned the truth that comes from him, 22 throw off your old sinful nature and your former way of life, which is corrupted by lust and deception.23 Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. 24 Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.

I believe God’s Word but…
Emotions – Intellect – Experience

Prosperity
Health
Healing
Blessing
Forgiveness

Truth #2
The Power of the Christian Life Does Not Come From the Mind
it Flows Through the Mind

Titus 3:3-6
3 For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another. 4 But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, 5 not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, 6 whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,

Regeneration (GK= Rebirth) Spirit
Renewing (GK=Renovation) Soul

We Are Saved By Submitting Our Hearts To Christ
We Are Renovated By Submitting Our Minds To The Holy Spirit
This Is Called “Humility”

When God says, “Here is truth”: It’s Truth
When God Says “This is evil”: It’s Evil
When God Says “This is sin”: It’s Sin
When God Says “This is righteous”: It’s Righteous
When God Says “This is just”: It’s Just

We Are Not Renovated When We Lift Our “Limited” Knowledge Above God’s Infinite Knowledge

It’s a Journey Not a Destination

Ephesians 4:23 AMP
and be continually renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh, untarnished mental and spiritual attitude],

Romans 12:1-2
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Every Truth Comes with The Need Renewing My Mind
The Power of The Renewed Mind Comes From The Spirit
It’s a Journey Not a Destination
