Carrying the Mind of Christ with Us

The following is a short article I wrote for our church newsletter today, but I wanted to share it on here as well:

Do you carry the mind of Christ with you throughout your work week?  In other words, do you reflect your Savior in your attitude and decision-making?  When I think back to the time that I worked in the secular workforce, I can remember having difficulty in keeping this Kingdom perspective.  More times than not, I kept a worldly perspective – I tried to live under my own strength.  I would put on my Christlike attitude on Wednesday nights and on Sundays, but it was too easy to slip back into a worldly mindset when I got to work on Monday mornings.  Even though I currently work full time in ministry, there are still times that I tend to think this way.  I think that’s part of human nature – we are independent and want to solve problems under our own power.


I have found that the more time I spent in the Word and in prayer and fellowship with the Lord, the more I keep a Christ-centered mindset.  I want to encourage our church family to stay centered in the will of God by feeding your soul with the Word on a daily basis.  When we do this, we will develop our mind for Christ.  We will have a Kingdom mentality; we will LOOK for opportunities to live our testimony, not just react when they present themselves.  Have a mind for Christ on a daily basis and with everyone we interact with, and we will change our world.
