Ephesians 5:10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord.
As Christians we are to seek out thoughts, actions, and attitudes that please the Lord Jesus Christ. What is acceptable to the Lord?
I am afraid that we are more concerned what our friends will think or how people will accept us if we have certain thoughts, actions, and attitudes.
How often do we ask ourselves what He would think about what we are doing? How can we find out what He thinks?
We have the very mind of Christ. We have the Bible, the very Word of God. The Holy Spirit, Himself, lives and dwells in us.
We need to be sensitive to Him and His leading. We need to be constantly thinking and asking what pleases Him
We need a daily time in the Word of God and a constant thinking on the Scriptures we are reading. We need to allow God’s Word to transform our thinking.
We need to engraft the Word of God into our hearts so we can think His very thoughts.
We need to memorize and meditate on the Scriptures.
We need to be part of a church that teaches the Bible. We need to attend all the services, take notes, listen, be open for God to work in our hearts in every service.
Our desire is to know more of His will, what pleases Him, etc.
We can’t really decide what is right and wrong. We think we can and have been thinking that since Adam and Eve ate of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. But we have been messing up ever since we started deciding.
I challenge you to get into the Word of God all the time. Let it begin to fill your thoughts and heart.
