Shhhhhhhh!!! I've Got a Secret
The SECRET, the real SECRET to living the victorious Christian life is directly connected to studying the Word of God in order to renew the mind.
- "Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the wordof truth." 2 Timothy 2:15
Your unregenerate brain accompanies you after your conversion. You mind was trained in depravity and you take it, with all the sinful habit patterns in tact, into your new life in Christ. The mind is not automatically regenerated-THE HUMAN SPIRIT IS! The Holy Spirit take up residence in the quickened human spirit, but the soul remains trained by the habit patterns developed in your lost condition. It has the potential of being transformed progressively, but that comes through the study of the Word of God and the washing of the Word. When God's truth is then mixed with your obedience and dependence upon the Spirit of God, the life begins to be transformed into the likeness of Christ. Beloved, that is THE SECRET. Pass it on!
