My Musings – A person’s mindset is the particular way they think, their attitude and opinions about how they view things. A person’s worldview is the overall perspective from which they see and interpret the world.
As follower’s of Christ, we should have our mind set on what the Spirit desires. This is contrary to our mind set prior to knowing Christ, where we had on mind set on what our sinful nature desired. A mind controlled by the Spirit of God will view things the way God does.
The mindset of sinful man can only lead to death, whereas the mindset of one born of the Spirit is not only life, but peace. The implication being that the mind of sinful man has no lasting peace.
My Advice – Set your mind on things above. View the world and your life through the lens of God’s Word. This will renew your mind and transform your life, as the things we take into our mind filter down to our hearts.
“And this time I know it’s for real. The feelings that I feel. I know if I put my mind to it, I know that I really can do it. It’s gonna take time. A whole lot of precious time. It’s gonna take patience and time, um. To do it, to do it, to do it, to do it, to do it. To do it right, child.” (I Got My Mind Set on You, lyrics by Rudy Clark, sung by George Harrison).
