Description

Sometimes we are simply ignorant to our own thoughts, words, or deeds, thinking they are God's will, but in hindsight we find them to be shallow and shortsighted. Learn how you can discern as to when your life is set on the things of man vs. the things of God.

Get Behind Me, Satan! Setting your mind on God's interests, not man’s.

Introduction Sometimes Christians do not realize when thoughts, words, or deeds are in complete disagreement with the Lord’s will. It is not as if disciples of Christ are without understanding His will. Eph. 5:17 Many times Christians think, pray, or do things with helpful intentions. Motives that are well intended, however, can sometimes be shortsighted when looking at God’s interests in/for our lives.

God’s Interests Verses Man’s God’s ultimate interest in/for man was illustrated through His Son. Undoubtedly, Jesus was interested in man’s physical welfare. Mk. 8:1-10 (Matt. 25:31ff) That interest, however, was within a larger scope: man’s spiritual and eternal welfare, especially for His followers. Mk. 8:14-21

Having Our Minds Set on God’s Interests Even though we know these truths we still forget such in our daily walk. While doing good to others in service to the Lord, many of God’s people have worldly interests that continues to pull. It is likened to walking away from the mirror of God’s law. Jas. 1:23 Such is the continuous battle that goes on in the life of God’s children.
