Think as He thinks!
Jesus said to His disciples (Matthew 10:16) "I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be as shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves". Wow - shrewd as snakes!? As we navigate our Christian walk here whilst on earth, we are to be aware of times where we need to respond with wisdom as the enemy will try and trap us in our words and behaviour. With the precious Holy Spirit, we can develop and be determined to have the mind of Christ. The Apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthian church (1 Corinthians 2:12) and said " We have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us" - and ends with in verse 16 "But we have the mind of Christ".
As we seek and pursue with all our might the things of Christ, keep being thirsty for the Holy Spirit through Jesus, we can and will learn to walk and think in the Spirit. It also brings an incredible peace to our souls as we learn to rest in these truths. Amen and Halleluyah!
