Time For An Update

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Romans 12:2 (NIV)

We live in the technology age. Technology is an amazing invention, as it has enabled us to do an array of tasks without having to use paper and pen to accomplish them.

We now even conduct business meetings, church gatherings, training classes, and family reunions online, all with the pressing of buttons. One no longer needs to physically go to restaurants to order food, or to the bank to deposit checks, or to the store to buy groceries, medicine, or clothing. We can even get ourselves from any location to another by using a map from a device called global positioning system, or GPS.

This would sound almost too perfect if I didn’t have to throw in a spoiler. In order for any of these things to work smoothly, for any of the devices to work without problems, we must perform regular updates on them. Computer programs must be updated; smart phones must be updated; if you like talking to Siri or to Alexa, or if you like to stay current on what is going on with the highways as you plan a trip, you must subject your devices to updates so they stay current. And trust me, you don’t want an old version of something digital, because it will get you stuck in the middle of something important when you least expect it.

Friend, your mind is no different. Your spiritual life is no different. In order for you to know how to face the troubles that come your way – and they will, you must constantly work in the renewal of your mind, by praying regularly, studying the Word regularly, and ensuring that your soul is fed, just as you feed your physical body to keep it healthy.

Jesus spent time teaching the people because He knew how important it was for them to hear what He had to say. The Bible has all the instructions we need to live a healthy life, and as we study it and pray, the Spirit will renew our minds to the highest version: heaven.

“Thank You, Father, for the Holy Spirit, who empowers us.”

For His Glory
