  • July 11, 2014 - Reflections

    By Jean S. Horner
    The other day while walking down a corridor in a public building, I saw what appeared to be someone walking toward me. On coming closer, I found it was my own reflection in a huge mirror. For a moment it frightened me. Somehow a full-length reflection of one’s self is a startling thing. ...

May 7, 2010 - Live in the Word

By Leonard Smith

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:1,2, KJV).

How can you renew your mind as called for in this passage?

The awesomeness of God’s Word continually serves as meat for the children of the King. “Seek, and ye shall find” becomes a reality as one dives into the waters of His Word. Revelation awaits! Discovery lies at the turn of each page! Ultimately, His Word points us to an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ.

The success of our daily challenge to allow Christ to work through us depends a lot on our allowing His Word to become substance in our lives. As we grow, His Word forever inspires us to march on, regardless of our present situation. The psalmist David compared the person who meditates upon the Word of God to a great tree planted on a riverbank, drawing strength continually from fresh flowing waters (Psalm 1:3).

This renewing of our minds brings us to a place of realizing our ability to live victoriously for God has nothing to do with us, but everything to do with Him. Presenting our bodies as living sacrifices requires our falling upon an altar and submitting ourselves to serving the kingdom of God. As we live in the Word and live in faithful service to the Savior, we find our identity in Christ.
