Time to Make that Change [A Study By Prince Malachi]

When it comes to the teachings of the Bible, doctrine, and duty go hand and hand. What we really believe determines how we behave. Understanding the Bible’s teaching is not enough. We have to translate our learning into living and show by our daily lives that we trust God’s word. To be Christian means that you are devoted to God. Everything you have and are is dedicated to worship and service to God. Anything less than 100% is short of God’s glory and is sin. When we were lost we were dedicated to the world’s system but now that we are found there must be changed! Change! George Bernard Shaw said, “progress is impossible without change; and those who cannot change their mind cannot change anything.” If you don’t learn anything else today, understand, if we want to be Holy in our living, we must train our minds in holy thinking.

You Must Give Yahweh Your Body. Before we accepted Yahshua, we gave our bodies to the world and its pleasures. Now that we gave our life to Yahweh  our body is also his. 1Cor. 6:19-20 teaches us that the Holy Spirit dwells within us, we are the temple.

Present your bodies as a living sacrifice. There are two “living sacrifices” in the Bible that help us see our point.

Ok, stick with me. First,  Isaac was willing to lie on the altar and would have died for it was God’s will. He was replaced with a ram but he still died, that is to self. When he got up he was a living sacrifice. Of Course The other is Yahshua  (Jesus). 

Giving God your body means you can no longer...

  • Do whatever you want to do
  • Do whatever your friends and family want you to do
  • Live for material things.

Now we have to understand, this is a constant dedication. You can’t give your life to him today, then take it back and do what you want tomorrow.

Ok so you might be asking, Why do we present our bodies to God? Well for one The sacrifice of the body is pleasing and acceptable to him. And second, the sacrifice of the body is the believer’s spiritual act of worship.

Give Yahweh your mind. (Romans 12:2a). To understand giving him your mind, you first have to understand the difference between being transformed and Conformed. Conform means to fashion in the outward form or outward appearance. Man changes his clothing based on what’s in style, and what everyone else is wearing. A conformist is afraid to be different and feels the need to be like everyone else.

Conforming can lead us to do what we know is wrong. Why and how? Conforming to the world and its system separates us from Yahweh 1Jn 2:15-17

  1. By giving in to the lust of the flesh (immorality)
  2. By succumbing to the lust of the eyes (materialism)
  3. By yielding to the pride of life (arrogance)

As Christians, we are not to…

  1. Follow the fellowship of the world. (James 4:4)
  2. Follow the fashion, the evil desires, and the lust of the word. (1Jn 2:15-16)
  3. Follow the false security of the world (Mt. 24:38-39)

Now let's talk about being Transformed- a Christian must be transformed and changed inwardly. His real self, his very nature, essence, personality, inner being, his inner man- must be changed. But what are The sources of the renewal of the mind?

  1. The Holy Spirit- teaches guides and allows you to see the truth.
  2. The Bible
  3. The teaching of the church
  4. Fellowship with other Christians
  5. The presence of Jesus

 Understand this, a transformer is a leader, not a follower. So what keeps many Christians from becoming butterflies? No growth. And that's because there is now bible study, no fellowship with other Christians and no fellowship with Yahweh., 

Now ask yourself, can a mind be renewed on a starvation diet? No! If you don’t get you don’t grow. When you hear that you are thinking about physical growth.  But this also applies to mental and spiritual growth. You have to study scripture daily and grow daily. Can a mind be renewed on a junk food diet? Many of us spend more time watching things of the devil than reading things of God.

You have to give Yah your will ( Romans 12:2b). Your mind controls your body, but who will control your mind?

Daily Devotional: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made...like a Beautiful Tapestry

God, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand.    I'm an open book to you;       even from a distance, you know what I'm thinking.   You know when I leave and when I get back;      I'm never out of your sight.   You know everything I'm going to say      before I start the first sentence.   I look behind me and you're there,      then up ahead and you're there, too—      your reassuring presence, coming and going.   This is too much, too wonderful—      I can't take it all in!    Psalm 139: 1-6   Boy, it takes a whole lot of faith to stare into the beauty of creation and then think that it just accidentally or randomly happened.  To see the delicate balance there is in life and…See More
