Thoughts are powerful. Everything began with a thought. The creative thought of God (John 1). Being made in His image, God has given us creative power though our thoughts. The chair you sit in was first someone’s thought before you ever had the chance to buy it. It’s color, it’s shape, all were ideas in someone’s mind. Now, you are enjoying the end result of that initial thought. Thoughts are powerful. They shape the future. They change the world.
This is why it is so important that we have the right thinking as youth workers. Our thoughts affect the next generation.
Listen to what Paul said about the importance of our thinking:
Romans 12:2 (NLT)
Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is.
The way that we are transformed is by changing the way that we think. I feel that God is continually challenging and transforming my thinking. Constantly renovating my mind; replacing old ways of thinking with new ways.
This week, I want share with you some of the ways that God has challenged and is challenging my thinking in Student Ministry.
But first a quesion:
How are some ways that God has been transforming your thinking?
I want to have the mind of Christ.
I want God to change my mind.
