Anchor of Truth

There have always been many voices saying “This is the way to know God.” Today’s media explosion has created more voices and more confusion. Why then another? Personal connection with other believers cannot be replaced by the mass media. It is much more satisfying to have a deep spiritual relationship with ten believers than to be in a crowd of ten thousand. Every individual is important to God, and His plan involves each one in a very real way. There are things that are important to God that can only take place in close personal relationships. Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality. The goal of God is to build a family of His children together in love, walking in truth. Personal submission and obedience to Christ will bring conformity of each member to Christ, and a growing expression of the nature of God in a local gathering. The testimony going out to the world around will be as a “light set on a hill that cannot be hidden” and “the pillar and ground of the truth.”

Episode 54 The Transformation of our Mind


The mind is one of the most critical members of our body, and Paul says it is also the focus of the transformation of our whole person. “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” How is this accomplished? What is our part? What is God’s part? To see our mind transformed where we think properly about all things is a major work. So many of our problems can be traced back to wrong thinking about God, about what He is doing in this time, about others, and about ourselves. Yet God has made full provision for our mind to be renewed so that we can have the mind of God in all things.


• Repentance is a change of mind and heart
o It begins when we turn from the world to Christ
o It continues when we see a direction we are taking is wrong
o It is true repentance when it is accompanied by deeds
• When we are born again (born of the Spirit):
o We have a new connection to God (life)
o We have a new heart (desire to please God and do His will)
o We have access to God’s grace through faith
o We must now bring the whole body under God’s control through obedience
• Some key elements of the transformation of the mind
o A teachable, submissive spirit (ready to take instruction)
o Giving focused attention to the scriptures
o Seek out sound ministry (a ministry of Christ Jesus)
o Making ourselves available to the grace of oversight
o Fellowship with other believers
o Look for the Holy Spirit to teach us in all things
o Obedience when light comes to us, no matter how small
• Confront truth and agree with God, even if it results in conflict
• Don’t defend ourselves and past behavior, but rather in humility embrace change
• Be consistent until our normal response is to “think in God” or according to God
• A renewed mind results in revelation as we experience God in the midst of need
