Change the Way You Think

What makes you change your mind?  It can be hard to change once you make up your mind!  We can really get stuck in the way we think.

One of the reasons we send people out in mission to Love God, Love People and Serve the World is it gives us  an opportunity to change the way we think.  Getting to know new people in new situations in different cultural settings is a great way to think in new ways.  It can be for an hour or two or for a week.  It can be close to home or in a different country.

Today a group of high school students and three adults are headed back from a week dedicated to loving God, loving people and serving the world in St. Paul, MN.  We pray for their safe travel home and return to their families.

During their week, their devotions were centered on Romans 12:1-12.  Romans 12:2 is my life verse and I love the way this verse reads in the Contemporary English Version (CEV):

Don’t be like the people of this world, but let God change the way you think. Then you will know how to do everything that is good and pleasing to him.

We pray that the group had an opportunity to let God change their minds! I’m looking forward to hearing from the group tomorrow in worship at 9 & 10:30.  And, to celebrating Father’s Day with a pancake breakfast.

God bless you,
