Hypnotized By The World

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. – Romans 12:1-2

Jesus never spoke or acted in the realm of poverty or lack. And based on the principles we find in scripture, I can conclude that Jesus didn’t allow Himself to think along those negative lives, either. Jesus could not be “hypnotized” by worldly thinking that bases its confidence only on what it can see. Jesus was not move by appearances, and in His example, He was teaching us how to live.

If we fail to renew our mind with the Word of God, we will remain unchanged and untransformed. We will be “hypnotized” by recessions, unemployment, and a volatile stock market. Our confidence will be in the intellect of mere men and not in our covenant with God or a belief in His goodness. We must refuse to believe the lie of lack and instead, diligently pursue the abundance God has provided for us in Christ by acting on the truth that we know.
