“The significance of thoughts”
Rom 12:1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of god is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
IF OUR THINKING WAS OK OUR MINDS WOULD NOT NEED TO BE RENEWED
NLT Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
TEV Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world
IT’S UP TO US WHAT WE LET FORM US!
WHOEVER’S THOUGHTS YOU RECEIVE YOU BECOME LIKE.
Gen 6:5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great on the earth, and that every intent (imagination) of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
THOUGHTS ARE NOT INSIGNIFICANT
IMAGINATIONS IN THE HEBREW; A FORMING OR A SHAPING
Gen 2:7 THE LORD FORMED MAN OF THE DUST OF THE GROUND
THOUGHTS HAVE POWER TO COME INTO THIS REALM AND SHAPE AND FORM IT IN YOUR LIFE.
YOU AND I ARE TODAY WHAT WE HAVE BECOME.
EVERYTHING STARTS WITH A THOUGHT.
Prov 23:7 “As a man thinks within himself, so he is”
