Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; And lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, And he shall direct thy paths.

For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him?
King James Version
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
I'm often reminded of John 10:10 that Christ came to give us an abundance of life. He is the way, the truth and the life. Nobody can do anything without him because in the beginning he always existed. You know I just wrote a blog entitled " Open Their Eyes To See " (being made free to see). First you must be saved and be born again. John 3:3 Once God opens your eyes to really see because the world is sleeping at that point even true Christians then might debate life in Christ. Some will say we can add this and that because we're not under the law but even though grace has been extended and the law has been done away with because God wrote it on our hearts anyways doesn't give us the right to trample the blood of Christ and abuse grace once we truly can see. God forbid - Apostle Paul. So once you truly understand the wisdom and meaning of that blog I wrote then you'll realize you need to put on the mind of Christ and that is debatable. You see there are so many deceived people in this world. There are so many religious hypocrites in this world. There are so many people that don't fear God but a living hell really does exist and God is not some mushy grandfather who's going to accept everybody in his kingdom. The truth is the way is straight and narrow. Most people end up in hell. But people don't fear God until they breathe their last breath and see hell. You see God is a just God and he is a perfect father. He does send people to hell. So you need to put on the mind of Christ. It truly is enmity to befriend the world just as written in the book of James. Your duty is to remain unspotted from the world and live a holy life as you were purchased with a price. So put on the mind of Christ and go forward trying not to look back.
I will leave you with the following..
Proverbs 14:12-16 KJV
There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, But the end thereof are the ways of death. Even in laughter the heart is sorrowful; And the end of that mirth is heaviness. The backslider in heart shall be filled with his own ways: And a good man shall be satisfied from himself. The simple believeth every word: But the prudent man looketh well to his going. A wise man feareth, and departeth from evil: But the fool rageth, and is confident.
KJV: King James Version
1 Corinthians 2:16 Context
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. 16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.
