Don’t Be Mindful Of Your Obedience…

Don’t Be Mindful Of Your Obedience - Be Mindful Of Christ’s Obedience At The Cross

Keeping God #1 in Your Business (PR_Vol_64)

2 Corinthians 10:5
5) casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 

Have you ever felt condemned because of the bad thoughts you have had? You could be in the middle of a prayer meeting when suddenly a dirty thought enters your mind. Actually, it is the devil that puts such thoughts in your mind. Then, he steps back, looks at you and knocks you on your head, saying, “How can you call yourself a Christian and still think such thoughts?”

I used to be in bondage over the bad thoughts I had because I felt that I had to confess every one of them and seek God’s forgiveness. But that is not what God’s Word exhorts us to do. You see, God wants us to bring “every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ”. Now, whose obedience are we to focus on? Christ’s obedience and not our own obedience!

But what is “the obedience of Christ”? It is His obedience at the cross, where “by one Man’s obedience many will be made righteous”. (Romans 5:19) Jesus shed His blood for us at the cross. This means that when our thoughts condemn us, we are to focus our thoughts on Jesus’ obedience at the cross.

My friend, the devil can only make inroads into our minds when he gets us to focus on our obedience instead of Christ’s obedience. His strategy is to point us to our obedience or the lack of it to determine our standing before God. But just as our position as sinners is not based on what we do, but what the first Adam did, in the same way, we are forever righteous today not because of what we do, but because of what Christ, the last Adam, did on the cross.

So the next time your thoughts seem to condemn you, say, “I am righteous whether I have good or bad thoughts. My righteousness has nothing to do with my obedience. Jesus’ obedience at the cross made me righteous.” Then, go ahead and pray, knowing that you have access to God and His favor, and that He hears the prayer of the righteous. (Proverbs 15:29) -  Don't be sin conscious, Be righteousness conscious.

You cannot stop the devil from interjecting bad thoughts into your mind, anymore than you can stop a bird from flying over your head. The mind is the devils playground. However, you can stop the bird from building a nest in your hair just as you can stop the devil’s thoughts from taking root and being productive.

Remember too, that you cannot wish bad thoughts to go away; just by trying to replace them with good thoughts. You must open your mouth and audibly declare the written word of God. That’s what Jesus did when the devil attacked Him. “He said, It is written...........” (Matthew 4 1-11). 

Here are a couple of (Bookend) scriptures that I have used and taught others to use, that eradicate bad thoughts instantly. First is, (2 Corinthians 10:3-5) and the second is, (Philippians 4:6-8). Memorize these scriptures, personalize them and declare them audibly in the first person. God’s word releases His power when we declare it in the faith of Jesus Christ and His Finished Works on the cross.
