I am working on the “renewing of my mind,” per all the scripture (Romans 12:2, ) telling me to renew my mind, as I am a new creation.
Well, if someone wants to tell me how one goes about this, I’d be grateful. I still haven’t figured it out, but I have started the process of learning who God is.
And well, because I am created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27), I can better learn who I am, and maybe what I should be thinking about, and maybe this will give me some insight into the renewing of my mind.
Tired yet? I sure am.
Here’s a helpful sermon by my boy Pipes (John Piper… is that offensive? I just feel like you and I are tight). Check it out for some help on the renewing of your mind.
But that’s not what this post is about – I don’t understand it enough yet to write about it.
This is about WHO GOD IS.
Because, brothers and sisters, when you know who God is, you can learn who YOU are!
AH! Is that not exciting? We were made in HIS image! To be like him!
I am very much into recreating quotes onto canvas to hang on the wall. But to do that, I have to look at an image, because I am not the best of artists on my own.
Here are some ideas on some of the attributes, or characteristics of God (via Challies):
Those are good, and worth learning about. I also love the book The Attributes of God, by A.W. Tozer.
But when I think how I want to model myself in the image of God, I think of things like these:
- unconditionally lover
- seeker of justice
What one attribute of God could you work on for yourself this week?
I’m going to work on “patient.”
