What does it mean to follow the path of Christ today? For Jim Marion, former Catholic monk, mystic, and attorney, if you want to join the Christ in the Kingdom of Heaven, you must do so while living as a human on the Earth. It's not something that automatically happens to Christians after death, nor can the Church do it for you. Indeed, says Marion, inner spiritual growth has always been the true essence of Christian practice. Putting on the Mind of Christ is the ardent expression of a modern mystic reporting his spiritual experiences within a "Christ-focused" framework. Neither evangelist nor theorist, Marion is a Christian practitioner--he's simply done what the scriptures advise. For Christians who are disaffected with contemporary Christianity there is another way--Marion calls it the "old original way"-to experience the true spirituality of Christianity. Drawing upon his own rich mystical experience and deep understanding of scriptural models, Marion shows the reader how to emulate the developmental stages of the Christ--how to put on the mind of Christ to achieve spiritual illumination and communion with the Christ. Pioneering, transcendent and grounded, Putting on the Mind of Christ may permanently alter the landscape of 21st century Christianity.
This is the 11th year for a thematic Lenten study offering. This study will include 7 sessions, one for each Sunday in Lent, including Easter Sunday. Each session features a scripture reference, a personal reading and questions for personal reflection or group discussion; suggestions for ways to deepen the Lenten journey or a focus for the coming week may also be included. This particular study is based on Philippians 2:1-11 (â€œLet the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesusâ€¦â€ ). The goal is to discover what it might look like for us, in very practical ways, to live with the mind of Christ.
“FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD THAT HE GAVE HIS ONE AND ONLY SON, THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHALL NOT PERISH BUT HAVE ETERNAL LIFE.” - JOHN 3:16 Grace – the undeserved favor of God. But will His grace be sufficient in our lives in our most desperate times of need? Yes! In this dynamic, inspiring testimony you will see how the grace of God kept and preserved Melody Wolfe through incarceration, mental illness, crime and addiction. You will discover how Jesus, the Word of God according to John chapter one, heals and rescues us from the domain of darkness and sets our spirits free to rejoice in God’s holy presence. At the age of 22, Melody was sentenced to serve a two-years-less-a-day sentence in a local correctional facility. By the age of 24, she had spent a total of twenty-one months in jail. She was diagnosed with mental illness and spent years in recovery. After the death of her husband, she lost custody of both of her daughters and was ensnared by addiction. Following an almost fatal suicide attempt, Melody was admitted into a psychiatric facility. It was there that she experienced the love of Christ in a powerful way. Melody is now serving the Lord Jesus in her church and community. She is an advocate for persons living with mental illness and has a deep desire to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to the world. Melody has since been restored to her family. Let this beautiful example of Christ’s love encourage you today!
Jesus suffered, doubted, hoped, feared, dreamed, wept, knew loneliness, planned, and built. William Barclay achieves in The Mind of Jesus his aim "to make the figure of Jesus more vividly alive, so that we may know him better and love him more." More than a study of the historical Jesus, this book radiates the author's devotion to him and breathes a real, compassionate understanding of the Christ who walked among and suffered for common humanity. Barclay's enthusiasm quickly draws the Jesus. Written in a vivid, immediate, almost conversational style, The Mind of Jesus conveys with fresh impact the complete humanity and perfect divintiy that evokes Barclay's -- and ultimately the reader's -- wholehearted devotion.
1 Corinthians 2:16. But we have the mind of Christ. Everything we do, everything we say, everything about us should reflect Christ in us. Acquiring the Mind of Christ begins when we accept Him as our personal Saviorwhen we seek to increase our knowledge of Him and when we become doers of His Word. We live in an ungodly world and evil will try with all its might to infiltrate our minds. Laws of the flesh war with laws of the mind! But we have help in Jesus the Christ. Be encouraged as you read this book, that even though we are tempted and tried, we are determined to have the Mind of Christ.
