Fix My Thoughts, part 4 - Pastor David Welch

September 18, 2022


“1 Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.
2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.”
Romans 12:1–2 (NASB)



THE BIG IDEA:

Here’s the process of renewing your mind –

Confront and isolate the lies you have let in.

Dig them out and replace them with life-giving truth.

Then you will be literally transformed.



How to Renew Your Mind:


I. Learn to Stop the Flow of Destructive Thinking

“… but be transformed by the renewing of your mind …”

Romans 12:2



II. Learn to Exchange an Embedded Lie for an Implanted Truth

“… but be transformed by the renewing of your mind …”

Romans 12:2



How to make the exchange:

  1. Isolate it

  2. Bombard it

  3. Replace it



Here’s the truth:

  • I am not my past mistakes;

  • I am not what has happened to me;

  • I am not what other people think of me;

  • I am who God says I am, a beloved child of God – redeemed by the love of Christ on the cross for me.



III. Learn to be Transformed

“… but be transformed by the renewing of your mind …”

Romans 12:2
