Use Your Mind

By   •   April 2

Christ touches every area of our lives. He touches our minds and we are transformed by the renewing of our minds. God invites people to use their minds, “Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord” (Isaiah 1:18). We are told in Scripture not to be like the horse or mule, “which have no understanding” (Psalm 32:9). Christ declared that we are to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, strength, and mind. We are told to fear God, to love Christ, and to hate sin. Fear, love, and hate are emotions. Dr. Leslie Weatherhead, preaching at the City Temple in London, said, “What is wrong with emotion? Christianity is falling in love with Christ. Has anyone ever fallen in love without emotion?”

Prayer for the day

May my love for You embrace my whole being, Lord Jesus. Teach me true love.

    When we think about all God has done for us , emotions surface. Why ….. because it’s obvious that no one else could possible love us as much as he does. Even as we continue to sin each day while trying not to. His amazing Love and Grace does not falter. I am so blessed to be a member of his family.

    What did Christ do between the ages of 12 and 27? Was he lost or in denial? Was he burdened by cares of the world? Did the death of his earthly father, Joseph, force him into a life of carpentry to care for his mother and brethren, delaying his entry into his ministry? Whatever the reason, we are grateful to YHWH God for guiding Christ into his life as saviour of all mankind.

      The ancient Hebrew language that the Old Testament was written in did not have vowels in its alphabet. In written form, ancient Hebrew was a consonant-only language. In the original Hebrew, God’s name transliterates to YHWH (sometimes written in the older style as YHVH). This is known as the tetragrammaton (meaning “four letters”). Because of the lack of vowels, Bible scholars debate how the tetragrammaton YHWH was pronounced.
