Renewing our minds

Yesterday’s YouVersion verse of the day was Romans 12:2. The associated devotional referenced 2 Corinthians 10:4–5.

It struck me deeply that these texts complement one another. We must renew our minds constantly to be transformed from a focus on the flesh to a lived experience of a Spirit-led life.

This is possible in knowing that the battle in our minds is a spiritual one and we must take captive every thought to obey Christ.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.https://www.bible.com/bible/59/ROM.12.2.ESV

‘For the weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh but have divine power to destroy strongholds. We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ, ‘ 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 https://my.bible.com/bible/59/2CO.10.4-5
