15 The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, 16 for,
“Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?”
But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:15-16
So, what does that mean exactly? It means the potential is there to think godly thoughts, to take righteous actions, and to speak peace into people’s lives. Will we still have harsh words, unkind actions, and less-than-godly thoughts? Unfortunately yes because we still live in this cracked vessel in a very broken world.
The potential for godly thoughts which leads to godly actions and words is certainly within our grasp. But it will be a battle every day because the forces of evil still roam this world and will fight us every step of the way. You didn’t think the evil one gave up just because you became a Christian, did you? No, he fights against us daily.
Fortunately, though, the God we serve is infinitely more powerful and gracious than any enemies we could ever face.
