Renewed in the Spirit of your Mind
In this TruthTalks Sermon, Dr Christopher Peppler shows us the topical image of the typewriter that has just been donated to the South African Holocaust and Genocide museum to show us how great idea’s and inventions can be used for horrific purposes.
So, how do thoughts become realities?
He looks at Proverbs 23:7 where it states that “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he…” (NKJV) and how this is taken out of context. If you look at just the verses before and after 7 we see the meaning of this text: “Do not eat the bread of a miser, Nor desire his delicacies; 7 For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. “Eat and drink!” he says to you, But his heart is not with you. The morsel you have eaten, you will vomit up, And waste your pleasant words”. A very different meaning to what we often interpret as ‘your thoughts become your realities’ don’t you think? Yet, we know that our thought does have some kind of profound influence on what we do.
What does the Bible say?
So instead, we are led to focus on Ephesians 4:17-24
