When we become a believer – a follower of Jesus Christ – we receive many benefits. The Holy Spirit comes to live within our hearts, and we receive Salvation, the forgiveness of sins, and the promise of eternal life. The Holy Spirit begins to work in our lives to grow the various types of His fruit such as love, joy, peace, etc. and we are given spiritual gifts that are to be used to bring glory and honor to God. But have you ever stopped to consider that because of the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives, that we also receive the mind of Christ? God’s Word has a great deal to say about the mind.
Have you allowed the mind of Christ to infiltrate your thoughts? Are you allowing the Lord to guide and instruct you? Do you look at situations in your life from His perspective? It is an incredible thing to discover how different our lives can be when we have “the Mind of Christ.”
“For who has known the mind of the Lord that He may instruct him? But we have the Mind of Christ.” 1 Corinthians 2:16
