We may go to church, pray some prayers, and read our Bibles, but in the end our actions and thoughts betray our belief that the solution to the problem of outrage in our world can be found in a worldly solution.
The mind is the leader or forerunner of all actions. Romans 8:5 makes it clear. Our actions are a direct result of our thoughts. If we have a negative mind, we will have a negative life. If, on the other hand, we renew our mind according to God’s Word, we will, as Romans 12:2 promises, prove out in our experience “the good and acceptable and perfect will of God” for our lives.
