Renewing Our Mind - Part 1
A GODLY MINDSET Page 5
V.24 ** What a great principle to live by, but how is it done? How can we accomplish so lofty a goal? Jesus gives His disciples and us a three step plan to do just that. What is it?
** By the way, what is a synonym for "wishes to come after Me"?
V.25 ** In these next three verses, Christ expands on all three steps of how we can renew our minds and develop "A Godly Mindset". First, if I am to be able to deny myself, what must I be willing to do?
** Just a note: What becomes of the unregenerate person that is preoccupied in saving his own life?
V.26 ** Secondly, how must my value system change, so that I will be willing to "take up my cross" daily? (Luke 9:23)
V.27 ** Thirdly, what incentive does Jesus give us to follow Him in obedience to His Word, with a renewed mind?
** Is that good news for everyone?
