Have you ever been around a changed person? Someone who used to be a bundle of nerves, but now exudes calm and grace under pressure? Or a former cake addict who never skips a workout? Someone who has been transformed?
Is it simply a matter of more knowledge? Many of us know the importance of a healthy diet and regular exercise. I would guess that the majority of Christians have heard Philippians 4:6-7 at least once. So what causes the change?
The transformed person doesn’t just know more Bible verses about peace, or how many calories are in her favorite food. She isn’t just committed to her new ways, her mind is fully convinced that the new way is better. The old way no longer holds the same over-powering allure.
But like most things, when left to itself, the mind goes back to what comes naturally. That’s why it must be renewed, continually.What verses are most mind-renewing for you?
