Mental Reset

The mind set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the Spirit is life and peace.

  • Romans 8:6

Romans 8:6 tells us our mind can be set on the world and death or on the Spirit and life. Often we need a mental reset or to clear our mind from what it’s set on and get it set back on good things.

How can we do this? Our mind is made to think and be engaged. It doesn’t really work to just be unset but we have to set our thoughts on something good and replace worldly thoughts. There are many ways to do this but here are 2 things I’ve found helpful.

  • Scripture – reading or reciting scripture can be a great tool. Write helpful or challenging verses on index cards. Have a regular devotional. Read blogs and sermons that encourage or instruct.
  • Prayer – a theme of the month at Juco has been prayer. Praying is a great way to focus on others and on the Spirit. Pray for the worries challenges and temptations of life.

It’s easy to get focused on worry, temptations and distractions. Don’t get set on these but replace them by setting your mind on things of the Spirit.

Matthew 11:28-30 ESV
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

This is maybe the only place in scripture where Jesus reveals his heart. What he is all about at his core. What does he choose to share to his disciples?

Gentle – He is not harsh or demanding. Not requiring perfection but welcoming, inviting and gentle. He wants us to come to him.

Lowly – He does not share about his holiness, power, perfection, omnipotence. He doesn’t want us to see he is exalted, dignified, austere, proud. He is accessible and near us. Not far off or removed. He is lowly.

This is encouraging to me because I must come back to Jesus again and again. After failures, after rebellion or just wandering off. He is always ready for us to turn back to him. Always inviting and welcoming.

This is challenging to me because it’s not how I treat others so many times. I’m not gentle but harsh or short tempered and impatient.

To be better we must continually turn back to Jesus.

“Come to me, … and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart”
–  Jesus

Titus 2:11-12

For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age,

  1. It starts with the grace of God, Jesus Christ. Rom 3:23 tells us all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. We have no standing with God except for his grace. Good news, Jesus has appeared, and not just for the self righteous or physically fit, but for all people. Accept his grace and salvation.
  2. The grace is not only our salvation. Not only a one time application but it trains us to live. We are bent toward this world, toward ungodliness. Just like we train in the gloom for our physical fitness, we must training for our spiritual fitness. Training to turn from worldly passions and toward upright and godly lives.
  3. Lastly, our hope is not in this world. This present age is where live and struggle and train but our bodies will all fail and pass away. Our hope is not in these bodies or this training but in the grace of God and his restoration of  the world in the age to come.

Don’t only train physically, but train with the grace of God for eternity.
