Romans 6:11 (NKJV) Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Building the divine logic is very important. If we do not keep on setting our mind/imagination and keep declaring the Word to reassure ourselves in line with the Word, as a New Creation, we would only manifest the nature of the old man (Eph 4:17-32). Paul affirmed several important points:

1. As believers, it’s still possible for us to keep living like someone who doesn’t know God – back to human natural/flesh lifestyle (Eph 4:17)

2. As believers, it’s still possible for us to live on useless mind – planning the things that are untrue, evil (Eph 4:17)

3. As believers, it’s still possible for us to keep living stubbornly, we don’t care about other people’s situations, we desire things that are contrary to God’s heart desires – live as we like (Eph 4:18)

4. As believers, it’s still possible for us to live ‘religiously’ – looks spiritual, but actually without the life of the Spirit at all (Eph 4:18)

5. As believers, it’s still possible for us to keep living in worldliness – our lives’ frequency inclines to this world; we hardly understand heavenly things / divine matters (Eph 4:18)

6. As believers, it’s still possible for us to live in our own version of truth – narrow-minded, refuse any inputs or corrections from others, stubborn (Eph 4:18)

7. As believers, it’s still possible for us to live in apathy, we hardly experience / enjoy the excitement of positive emotions (Eph 4:19)

8. As believers, it’s still possible for us to keep living as someone who is easily tempted, easily fell into temptation and become inaccurate (Eph 4:19)

9. As believers – even when we are still living in this dilapidated world, actually we could live a totally different life; by building new divine habits in our daily lives (Eph 4:20)

10. To be fully different men, it is not enough for us to only listen to the sermons / teaching; even after we are born again to be a New Creation; this must be followed-up immediately by meditating on the Word until the nature of our mind changes (Eph 4:21-23)

That is why, it is very important for us to build our determination to change the nature of our mind. Even though it takes times, but through our devotion to the Word, our mind would definitely change: we would inherit the mind of Christ! #ILoveGod
