Clear Thinking in a Muddy World

1 Peter 1:13

Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. - 1 Peter 1:13

 Prepare our minds for action
And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. (Matthew 22:37)

Be sober-minded:
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. (1. Peter 5:8)

  • In the midst of suffering seasons

  •  In the midst of emotional distres

  • In the midst of anxious unknowns

  • In the midst of tempting situations

Three Helpful Starting Points

  1. Think on true things. (Philippians 4:8).

  2. Take every thought captive (2 Corinthians 10:5).

  3. Trash the trash (Colossians 3:1-5).

Set your hope fully on Jesus.
For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. (Romans 8:5)
