Re: Verse reading–2 Corinthians 5:11-21; 1 Peter 3:15-16; Colossians 4:2-6 (day one)
With new life comes new logic. Christianity is a new way to think! The Apostles, who recorded the truths revealed in Christ, were bold to declare a revolutionary equation that came to the world after the cross and resurrection. 1) He died for all. 2) We should live for Him. 3) Therefore, we should live for all, including and especially lost people. (2 Corinthians 5:15) It’s missionary logic! Those who receive grace from God, are obligated to give it away. (Romans 1:14) “Knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade men.” (2 Corinthians 5:11) How can we do otherwise? Did the first followers repeat this logic over and over? Did they write this new equation in their journals in an disciplined effort to “be transformed by the renewing of the mind”. Probably. Want to try it? Want to love Him with your mind? Say the words to yourself! Write them down! Repeat them every day! New life. . .new logic.
