We need a different mindset. Unless our minds are constantly set on God and on His ways then something needs to change. We need our minds to be renewed, we need our minds to be transformed, we need to constantly realign our minds onto God and His ways. We can do this through discipline (taking every thought captive), we can do this through prayer, we can do this through immersing ourselves in His word, through fellowship with other Christians, through seeking God’s will and carrying it out and all this with the constant help of His Holy Spirit. Unless our lives are going to be ruled by our minds (our egos, our selfish desires…) we need a different mindset.
