The Mind of Christ

carrying the cross

Many diseases of both body and mind are self-inflicted. For example, ulcers are often caused by worry and anxiety. Heart attacks are caused many times by overexertion. Unjustified worry, fear, prejudice, hatred, and envy can contribute to mental stress, which could lead to mental illness. So one way to have a healthy mind is to avoid those practices. But the Bible-way to a healthy mind is this, “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.” If you have the mind of Christ, worry will be offset by trust, enmity by love, and fear by faith.

Prayer for the day

Fears sometimes seem as if they would overwhelm me, Lord Jesus, but then I remember Your gift of power, love, and a healthy mind. Thank You for the promise of healing and love, as I keep my mind on You, my beloved Lord.

    Today I needed these words of assurance(reassurance). Reminding me as I battled today with fearful thoughts and determined no matter what my “self” was telling me that the battle has already been won.

    Deliverance from diseases, stress, fear and the like, is a part of what our Lord Jesus Christ has promised to do for us. But the most important thing we should bear in mind is that He wants us to seek first the kingdom of God and His rightousness, because that is the key for salvation and for getting the rest of things that we need for our life in this earth. When we are more concentrated to good life in this earth, we are more likely to loose the eternal life, but when we are more concentrated to the kingdom of God, we will get it, and every good thing we need in this world God will add it to us.
