Mind of Christ

D.A. Carson on the transforming power of the Word:

“What is at issue is the transformation of the way we think bringing our minds in line with the ways and Word of God. That will produce all the change in behavior that is necessary and wise — and that change will be radical. By this fundamental transformation, we shall be enabled to test and approve in our own experience what God’s will is — and find it “good, pleasing and perfect” (Rom.12:2).

“In the light of Romans 8:9, doubtless the motivating power for this transformation is the Spirit of God. But that magnificent truth does not absolve us of resolve; it empowers it.
