BUILD YOUR MIND FOR EXCELLENCE IN LIFE!

And 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 (Romans 12:2).

A Christian is expected to build his mind for excellence in life. The proofs of your life determine the extent at which your mind is built in life. When you learn to build up your mind on God’s Word, you are bound to achieve excellent results in life. In the opening text, the Bible says that 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. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to build his mind for excellence in life. The ability to attain good, acceptable and perfect will of God depends largely on building one’s mind for excellence in life forever.

The Scriptures challenge us to meditate on God’s Word because it builds the mind for excellence in life. That is why the Bible says in Philippians 4:8, “…whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy- meditate on these things.” Therefore, it is indeed divine meditation in God’s Word that builds one’s mind towards excellence in life. Whenever a Christian learns to meditate on God’s Word, he is bound to produce excellent things that are worthy of praise to God in life forever.

Every Christian is expected to have the mind of Jesus Christ in life. The mind of Jesus Christ is always built for excellence in life. When you have the mind of Christ Jesus, there is nothing that can stop you from excelling in every area of your life. That is the reason why the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 2:16, “For ‘Who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?’ But we have the mind of Christ.” In fact, the mind of Jesus Christ is indeed the absolute mind of God for one’s excellence in life. Therefore, every Christian should take note of the fact that the mind of Jesus Christ is loaded with the absolute mind of God for excellence in life. Hence, whenever a Christian has the mind of Jesus Christ, he is indeed destined for excellence and greatness in life forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian is expected to have the mind of Jesus Christ and build it for excellence and greatness in life forever. Shalom!

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