Change Your Mind

Description

We must recognize that we are all sinners in need of a Savior. Is it time to change the way you think about God and sin by turning toward Jesus?

Read: Deuteronomy 33:1-29, Luke 13:1-21, Psalm 78:65-72 & Proverbs 12:25

In Jesus’s time, if someone was afflicted the community assumed it was a result of sin. If someone was crippled, blind or demon-possessed, it had to be the result of his sin or his parents’ sin.

In Luke 13, Jesus teaches that bad things are going to happen, but it’s not because one person is a worse sinner than another. He also uses this opportunity to teach another principle: repentance.

Not once, but twice Jesus tells his listeners to repent. To repent means to change the way you think about something. In this case, Jesus is referring to how we think about sin, and how we think about God. We must recognize we are all sinners in need of a Savior, and God is the source of both salvation and judgment (Romans 3:9-18). Paul wrote to the Romans, “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think” (Romans 12:2 NLT).

Is it time to change the way you think about God and sin by turning toward Jesus?
