Episode 56: Living with a Renewed Mind
Interview – Dave Ferguson – Lead Pastor at Community Christian Church, Naperville IL and co-author Finding Your Way Back to God
Today we see from God’s Word that the Bible is a living Word. It is alive and when that Word of God is meditated upon and dwelt upon in our thinking … the living God by way of His spirit and the living Word in your mind will transform your heart. It is not automatic when you become a Christian, nor does God take over your mind and make your heart and life become a certain way.
Our Heavenly Father has done a holy, mighty and gracious work for each of us in the accomplished work of Jesus Christ. Now it’s time to live for Him. If only today to get a glimpse of who you are in Christ to the end of believing your true identity…..then our time together has been well spent.
We begin by going to the scriptures to see some of what we have received in Christ. Then, we will look at the Word of God to see how to manifest, show forth in our day-by-day living the greatness of the Christ within.
