“Set Your Mind…”

“Set Your Mind…”

Blessings folk!


A tough Word!

Jesus tells Peter to “get thee behind Me, satan” just moments after telling Peter that he had received insight from Father.

Mar 8:32-33
And He was stating the matter plainly.
And Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him.

But turning around and seeing His disciples, He rebuked Peter and said,
“Get behind Me, Satan; for you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but man’s.”

How quickly we can go from truth to lie!

As Believers we must be careful.

So many fall into the trap.

Oh, we call it different terms…

We “stretch the truth”…
We “exaggerate”…
We use “creative license”…
We “misspeak”…
We “speak imprecisely”…

Such becomes a devastating pattern and practice of life for some.

We all know folk like this.
It is hard to believe anything they are saying.

The bottom line is that we can quickly stray from truth to lie.
We say “No!” to the Lord.
We want our way…the mind of man…rather than His way…the mind of the Lord.

Truth - setting our mind on God’s interests
Lie - setting our mind on man’s interests.
