“What the world” an expression my secretary uses when things are going array or if someone did / or said something that was not morally or ethically correct. I just love that expression, it just zooms in to the finite mindsets of many people in the world today and why this world is in a corrupt and vile condition. In my perspective, a human being’s finite mindset is one that demonstrates a sinful nature, whose focus is on material and physical things whose life is rooted in worldly things and not the spiritual. This sinful nature has no moral or ethical guidance. Look people! This kind of mindset is not going to get by with God. There is a need for a major transformation. Don’t you think so? Do you like the world as it is? Think and ask what do I need to do make this world better? Christians, apostle Paul gives us the answer in Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove that is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.” Yes, I know this is a process (sometimes a long one), but, Christians, you have help, the helper Jesus sent; the Holy Spirit,remember Him? He can help you transform your sinful natured mindset into one that is of the Spirit.
Christian’s are to be spiritually minded (Romans 8:6), living and walking in the Spirit(Galatians 5:25), not as finite human beings walking in the “flesh” because of their sinful natured mindsets. “Flesh can produce only flesh but the Spirit gives birth to Spiritual life” (John 3:6). This is a life that is pleasing to God. You want to please God don’t you? You do want to live in fellowship with Him don’t you?
God is the Father of all, meaning that His providential care and love is extended to all (Matthew 5:45), understand it like this’ He is creator of all! Our Father, wants us (Christians) to be empowered and yielding to the Holy Spirit.
The mindset that of the Spirit can change this vile and corrupt world. Just saying “ what the world” will not change people or the turbulent condition of the world.
Father, I pray that the mindsets and the hearts of mankind be renewed through the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
