There is only one way. You can’t pray, worship, praise, squint really hard the Mind of Christ into your head. You cannot have the Mind of Christ if you do not seek and read and ponder His word (Bible) daily.
Jesus is the Word that came in the flesh and dwelt among us and the world didn’t receive Him.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
All things were made by HIM (the Word); and without HIM was not any thing made that was made.
In HIM (the Word) was life; and the LIFE WAS THE LIGHT of men. (John 1).
Jesus told us plainly, “Except you eat the FLESH (Word) of the Son of man, and drink His blood, you have no life in you.
Whoso eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, has eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
He that eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, DWELLS IN ME, AND I IN HIM, (John 6).
JESUS IS THE WORD.
How else then can we say we have His Mind, if we don’t take in His Word?
Jeremiah said, “I FOUND THY WORDS AND I DID EAT THEM AND THEY BECAME THE JOY AND REJOICING OF MY HEART.”
You must press in fearlessly to His Word. I say fearlessly, because it (He) is LIGHT, and He will reveal any darkness you harbor inside your heart and soul. You must be willing to look into the mirror of His Word and let it wash you, “That He might sanctify and cleanse you by the washing of water by the word” (Ephesians 5:26).
That is again where we see the true Word, “Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink His blood, ye have NO LIFE in you.”
What does that mean?
As you receive the Word and dark areas are exposed, you then apply His BLOOD for ATONEMENT for you soul and you will have victory in this life.
As you begin to renew your mind with His Word, you will walk in the light of life and your life will be more abundant in true joy and contentment (as He promised in HIS WORD). You will change into His Glory.
Jesus said again, “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.” And, “IF A MAN LOVE ME, he will KEEP MY WORDS: and my Father will love him, and WE WILL COME UNTO HIM, and make our abode with him.”
How can we know His Mind if we don’t know His words?
We must take His word as it stands, believe it, walk in it, no matter how contrary it is to YOUR natural mind.
God told us in Isaiah, “My thoughts are NOT your thoughts, neither are My ways your ways, but that whatever My word is sent to do, it will surely be accomplished.”
Sometimes that means radical faith. But as you press in and seek with all your heart, mind and soul to KNOW HIS MIND, you will fall in love, and nothing shall be impossible to you who believe.
God bless you this New Year as you become more like Him by finding out what He says. And may the supernatural creative power of God’s word make you fearless and sold out to USHER IN HIS SOON COMING.
May He say to you, “I know you! Come in blessed of my Father, and stand on My right hand!” Matthew 25.
