The Thought life
2 Corinthians 10:5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
What does it look like to “take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ”? I can certainly tell you what it is not, it does not mean that we should for one second entertain any tempting, discouraging, or untrue thought that contradicts the truth of God’s word and the teachings of Christ.
Whether the thought that pops into your mind is tempting you into sin or making you feel negative about yourself, your purpose, or God’s plan for your life, it must be rejected immediately. Deny it entry to your mind.
