As a Christian, you have the mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16).
This doesn’t mean your thoughts are perfect. (Sorry!)
As I share in the short clip below, the mind of Christ is:
- Something far better than human wisdom. (Obviously!)
- The counsel of God’s Spirit in you.
- The key to exhibiting the kind of behavior in the flesh that reflects your real life in the Spirit.
To put it simply, having the mind of Christ means that you can know how Jesus would respond in certain situations.
Watch the video below to discover how to access the mind of Christ and the two most important thoughts God wants to lead you with.
I hate it.
I receive messages from too many Christians who doubt their salvation because God doesn’t feel close to them.
Some worry that they were never saved in the first place.
Others fear that God left them because they somehow upset Him.
Those are lies. The Bible promises that God lives in you and that He’ll never leave you (see Colossians 1:27 and Hebrews 13:5).
That’s more real than anything you feel (or don’t feel).
Yet you can feel really close to God.
In my life, I found that intimacy with God comes down to knowing just one thing.
Take a minute to hear me explain.
I have focused many of my messages this month on the Holy Spirit, who Jesus called “the Advocate.”
Here at the end of the month, I thought I’d show you a clue that Luke (the author of Acts) may have given us about the Holy Spirit today.
You see, throughout Acts, he shocks readers about the kinds of people who are eligible to receive the Spirit.
But the way he ends Acts may be his most surprising message. (And it has to do with you.)

Today, you’re probably heading back to work or school with something you hope people won’t know about you.
Maybe an aspect of your personality. Or your history. Or your relationship status. Or a weakness.
Of course, people don’t need to know everything about you.
But my prayer is that you won’t live in shame about anything about you.
So, I recorded a quick word to help you accept the truth about yourself.
Take a minute to listen.
This has helped me overcome loneliness and fear in my life. I trust it will do the same for you.
For years, my relationship with God felt like being on a rollercoaster.
Some days I experienced the rush of ascending to new heights with Him.
Revelation dripped from the pages of Scripture. Prayer was easy. God felt close.
Other days I experienced the dread of the drop.
Bible study was dry. Prayer was hard. God felt distant.
Can you relate?
Eventually, I discovered that the feeling of being close or distant from God was not on His part.
It came down to a simple misunderstanding on my part.
It’s probably the same for you.

Your eyes of flesh can only see flesh.
Often, this includes your glaring imperfections.
But there are things far more real about you that God sees this very moment.
Got 45 seconds to see what He sees?
The Bible reveals that the enemy masquerades as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14).
As part of this, he tries to pass off his voice as the voice of the Holy Spirit.
You may be shocked to learn that something you think comes from the Advocate is actually coming from the accuser.
And I learned it straight from the mouth of Jesus. …
I’m sure you know that the Old Testament was originally written in Hebrew.
But did you know that there’s no specific Hebrew word for the phrase, “God promised”? (Yet the phrase appears many times in our English Bibles.)
The truth behind what English translators did reveals something that will stir your faith today.
Take a minute to hear it.
This might sound unbelievable at first, but hear me out.
The Bible assures that you received a new heart when you believed in Jesus (Ezekiel 36:26).
It also reveals that your new heart is programmed to obey God’s laws automatically (Romans 2:14–15).
Like I said—that sounds unbelievable. Yet it’s true in your life right now.
Seriously! Your heart is programmed for holiness.
Let’s explore how this works. …
Since childhood, I believed that the Holy Spirit serves as God’s sin police, waiting and watching to correct my every mistake.
I’ve found that most Christians also have this idea.
Turns out that it’s way WRONG.
What I discovered about the word Jesus used to describe the Holy Spirit changed everything I once believed about Him. …
