Above the Din

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus... Philippians 2:5

We Christians are not to be conformed to this world in the way we think. The world by its advertisements, its conversations, and its philosophy is engaged in a gigantic brainwashing. Not always consciously but sometimes unconsciously, the Christian is beset by secular and worldly propaganda, calling us to live for ourselves and to put things and selfish pleasures ahead of God. The world's sewage system threatens to contaminate the stream of Christian thoughts.

However, above the din we can hear the voice of Scripture: "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God" (Rom 12:2)

Time yourself next time you read the Bible and pray. Compare it to the amount of time you spend watching television or surfing the Internet. Is God getting His share of your time or attention? Is the world shaping your mind -- or is Christ?
