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.

    “To be wise you must first have reverence for the LORD YHWH God. If you know the Holy One, you have understanding. Wisdom will add years to your life. You are the one who will profit if you have wisdom, and if you reject it, you are the one who will suffer.”

    The more I can grow to be more like Jesus. I want to live laugh walk talk and be a blessing to others.I love God with everything in me.The price he paid I do not take lightly.I see Him in the trees ,the sky,nature,and in a new born baby.He is every where,I dont have to look for Him,He is in my heart.

    The Holy Spirit has prompted me a Community Faith RN to remind readers not all illnesses are self-inflicted & Jesus power is made perfect in weakness as we glorify Him.
