“Be renewed in the spirit of your mind.”
EPHESIANS 4:23

When we embrace the Cross in our thought life we will see that our own thinking is limited, and at times, completely the opposite of God’s thoughts. We will readily see that our opinions, our prejudices, our very point of view, all need radical transformation. We will see how untrustworthy and unpredictable our mind, will and emotions can be apart from God.

As we submit ourselves to the Cross we see that God does not turn us into unthinking, unfeeling creatures of wood or stone; instead, He renews and transforms our mind so that our thoughts reflect His thoughts, and our mind reflects His mind. We will no longer be carried away by our emotions or find false comfort in our superior intellect. Our thoughts will be submitted to His wisdom and will assist us in understanding His Will and His Ways.
