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? Our purpose is to share truth to help strengthen your relationship with God and with other believers in your locality.

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.

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 42 The Renewing of the Mind

This is David Sheats on Anchor of Truth. To be able to think clearly about all things requires that our mind be renewed. Our thinking has been affected by many things that often results in confusion. How is our mind changed to think as God thinks? Is that possible? Paul tells us that the renewing of our mind is essential to our transformation. He also appeals to the Corinthians to “be of the same mind and the same judgment.” Is that possible? With so many different ideas floating around today we may have become discouraged and given up, but today we want to be encouraged that our mind can be renewed and we can think as God thinks.

• Our minds need to be renewed (Rom 12:1,2)
o Affected by sin
o Affected by input from the world
o Affected by our own reasoning
• Renewal is a process
o Requires a regenerated heart (pure desire to know God)
o A desire to know the will of God to do the will of God (John 7:17)
o A humility to acknowledge that I may be wrong in my thinking
• Scripture is an essential part of this renewal
o Gives us a history of God’s working
o Given to teach us about God
o Given for instruction in righteousness  (2 Tim. 3:16)
• The importance of fellowship (Acts 2:42)
o Allows us to “think together” with others
o Forces us to articulate truth in our own words
o Enables us to partake of grace through others
o Humility puts us in the place of a learner
• Truth (understanding) comes for us to obey
o Walking in the light prepares us for more (I John 1:7)
o Obedience results in truth being made part of us (John 1:14)
o The word made flesh results in testimony to the world
