“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”
Philippians 4:8 ESV
Keep your thoughts from all negative and destructive things, because a thought produces feelings which lead to actions or inaction, which keeps people from fulfilling their calling in Christ. What you think on will eventually take growth in your heart and begin to produce a harvest of either good or bad in your daily life. If we take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ Jesus, we will be allowing only Truth to be planted and rooted in our hearts, but if we ignore such a great salvation as Christ in us, we will find ourselves buried under a pile of weeds when we don’t tend to the inner garden of our hearts.
Understanding is needed and unity in the Holy Spirit will create a beautiful harvest of righteousness. We need to extend grace to others and show them that Christ is in us and that healing is still for today, as well as supernatural peace that the world doesn’t understand. There should be no jealousy or evil working in its members. Generosity, kindness, meekness, and humility should be in every individual and not just a few.
So now hope, faith and love remain, and the greatest of these is love. God is Love,and we should all resemble him as a new creation in Christ.
