STIMULATE

** Last week we learned that Peter's problem was that he had set his mind on man's interest rather than on God's. What was the three step plan, which Jesus gave us, to help us develop "A Godly Mindset"?

1) Deny yourself - Do not look out for your own interest!
2) Take up your cross - Be willing to suffer or die if necessary, for Christ's sake!
3) Follow Jesus as Lord - Be obedient to His Word!

** Are you seriously trying to apply what the Holy Spirit is teaching you? Are you remembering throughout the week the rich truths that God teaches us? Are you applying those truths to the trials of each day so that you avoid the error that Peter made when he rebuked Jesus saying, "This shall never happen to You"?

Our life must be in complete submission to the authority of God's precious Word. We must not let our emotions (or sinful flesh) mandate our actions, but rather we need to always have a Christ honoring response, which is why Paul told the Corinthians, "Whether, then, you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God"! (1Corinthians 10:31)

MOTIVATE

** As we began the "Renewing Our Mind" series, we listed four questions that were designed to help us learn the importance of a Christian renewing his or her mind. Today, we are going to answer the second of those four questions, "How urgent is the need?"

If I am to not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of my mind, how urgent is the need for that transformation? The apostle Peter addresses this issue in his first epistle. Would you join me in 1Peter 1:13-25 as we see Peter describe "A Prepared Mindset".
