What You'll Discover in this Episode:
Do Not Be Conformed to This World
Let us continue with the topic of Renewing the Mind in this episode of the Biblical Counseling Podcast and let’s start off with this verse.
“…do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind that you might prove what is good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:1-2.
Aren’t we surprised that the word of God is so sufficient? It is so relevant to the culture that we are living in the world today no matter what part of the world you live in.
The Lord has made it clear that it is His will for you and for the people that you counsel. We need to be renewed in the very spirit of our minds. We don’t want to be conformed to this world, but we want to be transformed.
The renewal of the mind involves the entire mind.
This is an important topic that we wash by the water of the Word daily, sometimes hour-by-hour because as followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, we need to have our thinking molded and shaped by the word of God and not by the world (man’s way).
We don’t need the coping mechanism of psychology or the ways of the world to help us learn to navigate this life.
What we need the Word of God. He will change the way we think and thereby, the way we live and watch us be transformed.
It is your heart to see the people you minister to. You are a counselor. You are training to be a biblical counselor. This podcast is a reminder to stay the course. Commit to the sufficiency of scripture.
There is power in the very ways God has for us.
