It's Time

Now is the time for a Christian mind.

The Christian Mind

We then, as workers together with Him also plead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain. For He says: “In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6.1, 2

The Christian Mind
Harry Blamires (1916-)
“The time has come at which Christians must take the initiative in order to avoid being outmanoeuvred. What is demanded of us by the voice of the Church, if properly understood, is likewise dictated by tactical and prudential considerations. In short, it is better to define, establish, and nourish a Christian mind in freedom now, as a positive last effort to bring light and hope to our culture and our civilization, than to have to try to gather together the miserable fragments of Christian consciousness after triumphant secularism has finally bulldozed its way through the Church, as a body of thinking men and women.”

Harry Blamires concludes The Christian Mind with a solemn call for us to get busy, working to awaken and nurture the mind of Christ in ourselves and our fellow Christians. We are closer today to that day he envisioned over 50 years ago, when our freedom to live Christianly might begin to be curtailed, if not revoked. We cannot help our culture and the lost people of our world if, by our negligence, we leave it to God-haters and Gospel-deniers to define the terms of truth, pipe the tunes we dance to, man all the bully pulpits, and write the legislation that determines the course of our society. It’s not too late, but it’s later than we might think. Every church leader needs to consider the likely consequences of our failing to use the mind of Christ to make our way in this world. And every church leader needs to remember that, because we have been given the greater responsibility for nurturing the Christian mind, and all aspects of the Church’s discipleship, we shall bear the greater judgment when our work is called to account.

What steps can you take to begin improving the Christian mind in your own life, as well as in your sphere of ministry and influence?

Your Life as Christ Sees It

“As the Father has sent Me, I am sending you” (Jn. 20.21). That’s how Jesus thinks about our lives. Our Mission Partners Outreach program is designed as a life-based training curriculum, to help church members identify and begin thinking about and working their Personal Mission Fields for the purpose of making disciples and advancing Christ’s Kingdom. I’m looking for some men to lead through this training program, and to help you see how our Mission Partners Outreach programcan help your church overcome its failure to communicate.

Prayer and the Christian Mind
Prayer is the framework in which a Christian mind is engaged and nurtured. Here we commune with the Lord Who makes all things new, including our minds. Are you working to improve your prayer life? Download our free ReVision series on The Parameters of Prayer by clicking here(for the first installment). Get with a friend, or share this study with your group, and grow together in prayer, for a Christian mind and more.

We rejoice in the Lord for His goodness in supporting our ministry. Might He want to use you in this way? Please look to Him in prayer over this question.
