Daily reading the Bible with an open heart may be the best anti-malware for the human brain. Many people are far more careful to install anti-malware on their computer than on their mind and heart. Don’t give up! Jesus will break your chain of thought if you let Him speak to you through your conscience and the Bible!
Learn new things about yourself. The Bible’s a mirror and will show things you never knew about you. Read it with an open heart. I’ve only found one book that burns in my heart so much that I read it everyday. It’s the Bible!
Too many people assume they know enough about Jesus to have a ticket to Heaven and be done with Him. That’s not Christianity. Christianity is not just believing in the historic Jesus but experiencing the living Jesus.
People who stop growing in Christ may not be “abiding in the vine.” (See John chapter 15.) Paul said that he wanted to demonstrate Christ, not just talk about Him. (See 1 Corinthians 2:4.)
Don’t settle for one preacher’s ideas about the Bible. Get out of the religious corral and read it for yourself! Whoever came up with the idea that some Christians are experts and the rest are spectators? I can’t find it in the Bible.
When I read the book of Acts and see the passion and joy of early Christianity, I wonder what happened? Many people miss understand the Bible concept of grace. Grace is not permission to disobey God, but the free gift of supernatural power to obey Him.
Why focus on the Bible? Whatever you read, listen to, or watch, you download into your brain and invite to mold your thoughts, emotions, and behavior. Habitual thoughts are the mental programs that direct your life. If you don’t change them you’ll keep getting the same results.
