Daily Bread 3/14/2023


    Daily Bread – March 14, 2023 (The Third Day – Genesis 1:9-13) Ephesians 4:23 – And let your mind be renewed by the Spirit. Think Different God desires we think differently about ourselves. In order to be renewed by the Spirit in our mind, we must be willing to believe what God has said – and then think of ourselves and the things around us accordingly. We must not be conformed to the image and concepts of this world; but instead, be transfigured by believing what God has said (Romans 12:2). We have been given a new knowledge of ourselves – the knowledge of sonship (Colossians 3:10; Romans 8:15; Galatians 4:7). If we continue to think of ourselves as anything less than those who are born again, alive from the dead, and co-inheritors with Christ, then we are thinking wrongly (1 Peter 1:23; Colossians 2:13; Romans 8:17). We have been changed by the power of God and created anew. We have been made holy and acceptable – the saints of the Most High with all authority in Christ Jesus (Romans 12:1; 1 Peter 2:5; Colossians 1:22; Ephesians 4:24). After having received Christ Jesus and being taught by Him, we must hold fast the identity and position He has given to us (Hebrews 3:6; Galatians 5:1). Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
