The Mind of Christ…

My dad was a wonderful strong Christian man. He loved God and spent hours of every day reading his Bible and praying to the Father. In his last days, he had read the book titled, “Mind of Christ”. As he gradually succumbed to dementia, he said he had prayed for the mind of Christ and this is what he got. It seemed he didn’t understand what was exactly happening, but he was ok with it because he had prayed for the mind of Christ.

How often do we pray for something and we don’t quite get what we wanted? If ever we can look past what our wants are and enjoy the gifts God gives us, we will find the fruits of the Spirit waiting to be plucked from the tree of life.

Anyone want to join me in praying for the mind of Christ? Hopefully, they won’t lock the doors behind us or maybe they will…..

It is the desire of my heart that God be Lord of my life. Life’s experiences have killed the old man and God is building a new creation in me. I look forward to experiencing the new man God creates in the old vessel known as Archie via "God Spots".

  1. It’s funny…almost everything I pray for turns out to be almost completely different–not bad—just different. I too am tired of my own mind. It gets me in trouble. I so desire the mind of Christ, because my own thoughts and desires cause me so much heartache, confusion, frustration.

    I am praying this for my own life, too. In fact on Sunday, during service, I told God–enough of this flesh. I’m done with this flesh. The flesh sucks. I desire to pursue God in a way that my mind of Christ will override my flesh. My flesh will not go away–I will not be perfect, but if I could only have the mind of Christ then I could overcome, and have peace. The mind of Christ brings peace.

    I know this is a bit random, but know you get a glimpse of how my mind works and can clearly see why I’m so deseparate to abandon it! 🙂

  2. TJ. You are on the right track ,continue to seek the mind of Christ and you will never be disappointed . God bless.
