PRAYER: Lord, Help Me To Always Maintain A Positive Mindset

Protecting one's mental health is an ongoing responsibility for the Christian. He must guard against intellectual assimilation by the populace at large. If he mentally accepts this world, his actions will certainly follow suit.

Violence and anarchy are frequently glorified in the media, including commercials, home videos, and songs. Whether overtly or covertly, the believer is constantly under attack from secular and worldly propaganda. The goal of this world is to condition the believer in Jesus Christ to accept and embrace its values and customs.

'Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus' is a biblical exhortation meant to protect Christians against the corrupting influences of the world. (Philippians 2:5) The mind of a Christian should be centered on Christ. He must not adopt the world's standard of thinking. He needs to abandon modern ideas and values.

An adherent of Christ is not called to conform to this world, but to be transformed by it. Scripture advises, "...be you converted by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God" (Romans 12:2, KJV) (Romans 12:2, KJV).

The Christian is not to imitate the world, but rather to follow Jesus Christ and be a beacon of truth in the darkness.
