Battlefield of the Mind Podcast Week 7: The Mind of Christ
The night before His crucifixion, Jesus instructs His disciples not to be troubled (John 14:1). Jesus knows the disciples are about to face the most trying time of their lives. He is well aware that His death is going to rock the disciples to the core. Yet, He commands them not to allow their hearts or minds to be troubled.
Think about this situation from the disciples’ standpoint for a moment.
The disciples believed Jesus was the long-awaited Messiah who was the “King of Kings.” They laid down their lives to follow Him. Each disciple left his family and friends to pursue the Lord. The disciples left their comfort and security to follow Jesus. These twelve men quit their jobs to join Jesus in teaching others about God.
They falsely expected Jesus to set up His kingdom on Earth.
But He didn’t.
Instead, Jesus fulfilled the plan of God by laying down His life on Calvary’s Cross. He died the death of a murderer -even though He had done nothing wrong.
How confusing for Peter, James, John and the disciples. As far as they could see, everything they had lived for up until this point was gone. Their livelihood appeared to be destroyed. Their Messiah was dead. And with His death… went their hopes, dreams and plans.
Peering at the Cross, these men could not make sense of what had taken place. Yet Jesus, knowing how completely defeated His disciples would feel, told His followers not to let their hearts be troubled.
This Word is still as pertinent today as it was 2014 years ago. It doesn’t matter what you are going through, how things appear, or whether or not they are as you expected. If you will keep your eyes on Jesus and trust in His plan, you can remain in perfect peace through every storm knowing that His plans far supersede your understanding
Isaiah 26:3, “You will guard him and keep him in perfect and constant peace whose mind (both its inclination and its character) is stayed on You, because he commits himself to You, leans on You, and hopes confidently in You.”
In this Battlefield of the Mind Podcast, I give real life examples on everything from how to keep your home life in order to letting your voice be heard in your relationships. Through personal examples and teaching from the Word of God, you will learn how to overcome passivity and walk in the mind of Christ.
