1Corinthians 2:16 We have the mind of Christ
Proverbs 23:7 As a man thinks so is he.
Romans 12:1-2 We are transformed by the renewing of our minds.
God’s intention from the beginning apart from restoring us to intimacy and oneness with Himself was to save us from three main things.
1)Sin and the consequences of sin (sickness, poverty and premature death).
2) The devil. 1John 3:8.
3) Self or the natural or soulish man. When Adam committed high treason against God in the beginning, his spirit took on the nature of rebellion, iniquity, and became spiritually estranged from Almighty God.
Verse 1 And you has he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins;
Verse 2 Wherein in time past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience:
Verse 3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.
