CRACK THE CODE
Video gamers are always seeking to crack the code to reach the next level. As Christians, we cracked the code when we accepted Christ as our Lord and Savior. We become a new person when we surrender it all to Christ but how do we move past patterns of behavior, thoughts, feelings, actions and reactions that we have been used to for years. It isn’t easy and we can’t do it on our own.
Paul says in Romans 12:2: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.”
If nothing changes and we’re still stuck in our old way of living and thinking after we come to Christ, we’re not making progress. We must seek to transform our mind so the old us dies. We have to let God transform us into a new person by changing the way we think. Only when the Holy Spirit renews and redirects our mind are we truly transformed. We are truly set free when we do what we should not because we ought to do it but because from the inside we love to do it.
