Pastor Josh Jamison opens on the renewing of our minds through the word referencing the Bible verse 2nd peter 1:21 for prophecy never came by the will of man but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the holy spirit." 2nd timothy 3:16 "all scripture is given by inspiration of God" Josh goes on to explain we are God driven when we get into the word and the word causes us to advance and move forward. Melissa adds "Sometimes we need a jumpstart there is a 1001 things that we can think of during our days and during the week" As our minds are filled with something to keep us occupied "are we going to be a disciple of our mind or a disciple of God". We want to be a Christ disciple of God further explaining how we get there is by using the word (Bible) and to hear the word of God then performing the word of God in our everyday lives. Our minds are bombarded with negative thoughts and images as well as things when we were taught as a kid can have some negative thought impact that can cause depression. There shouldn’t be Christians walking around depressed all the time this is not meant to bring condemnation to people struggling with depression in the body of Christ but instead to know there is a higher road and a higher place to look towards. Our minds will be the same if we are not renewing them with the word of God in the Bible. Pastor Josh Jamison states when we renew our mind in the word (Bible) we program it to the thoughts of God we get thoughts of power, faith, boldness, healing the good things we want in our life and ultimately we have a foundation to be used by him (God). Joshua 1:8 "this book of the law shall not depart from your mouth ,but you shall medicate in it day and night that you may observe and do all that is written in it for then you will make your way prosperous and then you will have success." We don't speak many repetitive words so the lord would hear us it is rather so our mind will be renewed as we possess the mind of Christ changing our mind to line up with Christ's. Romans 10:17 "so then faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
