Fix My Thoughts, part 1 – Pastor David Welch

August 21, 2022






20 But you did not learn Christ in this way, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught in Him, just as truth is in Jesus, 22 that, in reference to your former way of life, you are to rid yourselves of the old self, which is being corrupted in accordance with the lusts of deceit, 23 and that you are to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, 24 and to put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.
Ephesians 4:20–24 (NASB)


Big Idea:


It’s possible to fix the most broken things in you – by fixing the ingrained thoughts that drain you and damage you every day.


If you fix your thoughts, you fix your life.


This is a promise embedded in the gospel.




Three Beginning Insights:

I. Your Thoughts Shape Your Life


and that you are to be renewed in the spirit of your mind,

Ephesians 4:23


II. Your Mind Can Become New


and that you are to be renewed in the spirit of your mind,

Ephesians 4:23


III. It Means: Deep Change Is Possible


For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline.

2 Timothy 1:7 (NASB)
