Something to Think About

Welcome to Renew The Mind Ministries

The apostle Paul instructs us to do four things in Romans 12:2 regarding renewing the mind:

  • Do Not Conform To The World
  • Be Transformed
  • Renew The Mind
  • Prove The Will of God

Most of the content on this site is designed to help you to learn the will of God so that you might prove His will in your lives.  The idea of proving (dokimazō) the will of God literally means to put the word of God to the test.  That is say that once we discover God’s will (thelēma – inclination, pleasure, desires) in His Word we are to do that which we have learned so that we might see for ourselves that His will is good and acceptable and perfect for our lives.

The questions here are:

  • What is the mind?
  • Why do we need to transform our mind?
  • How do we transform our mind?

What is the Mind?

Before we discover what the mind is let’s first look at what the mind is not!

  • The mind is not the human brain.  The function of the brain, simply speaking, is to do two things.  Those things are to store information and control the functions of the human body.
  • The mind is not where the thought process takes place.  That process takes place in the heart.

(Pro 23:7)  For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:

  • The mind is that part of us which stands between the brain and the heart and regulates the information that passes from the brain into the heart.  If we are carnally minded our minds permit man’s wisdom to pass into our heart.  If we are spiritually minded our mind takes into captivity only that which is brought into the obedience of Christ (2 Cor 10:5) and permits only that revelation to pass into our heart.

Therefore the mind is like a filter and our objective is to renew the mind from it’s natural condition of carnality into a state of spirituality, or God mindedness.  This causes single mindedness on the part of the believer just as Christ was single minded towards His Father and His words.

To have the mind of Christ means to be disciplined, as he was, receiving only that which was from the Father into His life.

If a person is double minded they do not have the mind of Christ because he or she allows both carnal and spiritual information into their heart.  Subsequently, when they enter into the process of thought, their thoughts become confused because they are considering two kinds of information; Godly and worldly, rather than just receiving Godly information, or what we like to call revelation knowledge, into their hearts.  That is why a double minded man’s thoughts are more often than not convoluted regarding scriptures.  As a result a double minded man is unstable in all of his ways (Jam 1:8).

Why do we need to transform our mind?

So that we can become single minded towards God, thinking only Godly thoughts, speaking only Godly things and doing only the will of our Father in our lives, thus being transformed into the image and likeness of our Lord Jesus Christ.

How do we transform our minds?

By disciplining our selves to take captive only that information which is obedient to Christ, depositing that information into our hearts, and meditating on them.

Therefore the purpose of this ministry is basically twofold:

  1. To exhort you to begin to discipline your mind to only allow Godly thoughts into your hearts.
  2. To give you the word of truth, as opposed to the doctrines of men, that you need to help you to walk the narrow path and pass through the narrow gate which leads to the kingdom of God on earth.

It is our earnest and fervent prayer that all who come to Renew The Mind Ministries leave this site having gleaned what God has left for them here and that they continue to return when they are hungry for the bread of life!

May our Father God Bless You and Keep You in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen!

Your Hosts in Christ,

  3. Dear Servant of God.
    Greetings to you in the most highly exalted name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
    Am very much happy to know you through your website. Am very much happy for the work you are doing and the true teachings of grace which i have gone through and truly am touched. On behalf of the church and orphanage under my leadership we are very much happy to send this letter to you. I take the promise from Mathew 7.7 and approach you. I may be knocking at your door at an odd time, but with the promise that it will be fulfilled, We are requesting for affiliation from your organization so that we continual sharing the love of Christ with broken world and in the midst of the poorest community. (Isaiah 61:1). A world which is desperately in need of the saving grace and power of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    We are a team of youngsters with a great zeal and enthusiasm to extend the kingdom of God in Africa, I have a small church in Kenya. Our aim is to visit every nook and corners of Kenya villages and promote the Gospel to every perishing soul. We really hope to see a great deal of harvest in the coming days. In this regard we earnestly wish for your leadership and guidance,
    We are doing the work of God here in Nairobi Kenya, The capital City of Kenya, we are very much ready for any direction from you by God’s grace.

    We have also orphans children home because of the rate of dead leaving children without parents, At such facts we bring some of the orphans to us on look after them by collecting money from our local people. But many times the money collected in that way is beyond the reach of their basic needs. At present we are looking after 80 orphans children. When we found them they were in a very pathetic condition. They continually cried for they lost parents. Some midnight’s many of them got up and cried bitterly for their lost mother and father. It was beyond our level to console them they are gradually getting accustomed to our love and care.
    We have to provide them clothes and coverings. Feed them twice a day. Send them to school and buy their educational material and pay their medical bills. Now a day’s prices shave gone up so high that a common man cannot reach them. In such a condition we are not able to feed them and meet their needs properly. If we forsake them to their fate their precious lives will be ruined. In this regard we approach you for your kind prayer to wipe out the continuous stream of tears on their tender cheeks and fill their little bellies with a little food. As we have shared with the orphan children about this letter to you they have already started to pray that our Heavenly Father may bring you their way.
    We have our co- Church workers in different villages. We all work together for the extension of the kingdom of God. All our co-workers are very poor. They have no proper shelter and no permanent church buildings. some gather under trees for worship. They have their families to hunger and uncured and go for Gospel work. Many days in a month they face foodlessness. Our ministry really consists of starvation, anxieties, rebellions, mockeries etc., but we are persistent in the Gospel work to save the perishing souls, We wholeheartedly invite you to Kenya for Church conference. Please come once to encourage us in our ministry. Every year we conduct Conference, Crusades and conventions. Would you be a main speaker in one of our conventions or Conference? If you kindly write me your convenient date we will arrange meetings. We really need your interference to bless us in our ministry. Our co-workers are regularly very burdening fully praying to God to send any mighty man like you to support them with the word of God and help the orphans Children. We really believe that God will show you our agonies and groaning.
    Please commit yourself to co-operate with us and encourage us in the way you can as Lord enables you. We entirely depend on your kind involvement. We very hopefully and prayerfully await your kind and favorable letter. All our workers, church people, and orphan children are sending their heartily greetings to you. I am waiting for your reply.
    Thanking you
    In His Love,
    Pastor Handson marabu.

  4. Hi mates, pleasant article and nice arguments commented at this place, I am genuinely enjoying by these.

    Sure!

    The best thing you can do is to come up with a good pass word for the site. Use about 12 characters, upper lower case letters, numbers and symbols.

    The next thing you can do is to use a “captcha” plug in that forces people to respond to some type of question.

    Lastly there are plug-ins and programs which allow you to back up your site. Back up your site at least once a week.

    That’s about it for now.

    Good Luck!

    Bill
