You can cleanse your flesh by renewing your mind with God’s Word.
Renewing Your Mind
Andrew Wommack teaches us about renewing our minds with God’s Word. He referenced 1 Peter 5:5-7 and James 4:4-5 (AMPC) to emphasize that our God is a jealous God. Conforming to the ways of the world is being an enemy with God. The Spirit of the Lord that dwells in us is jealous.
“Our God is a jealous God. It’s not talking about our spirit. When you get born again, God takes that dead, corrupt spirit out of you and you don’t have that demonic sin nature on the inside of you anymore. You’ve got a brand-new nature,” Andrew explained.
You can only cleanse your flesh by renewing your mind with God’s Word. That’s the only way we can avoid conforming to the ways of the world and going against what God has told us.
“I know sometimes you’re thinking, ‘Well, wait a minute, I still got a lust for some things.’ It’s not because your nature is that way anymore, it’s because you haven’t renewed your mind.”
Our mind is programmed to think of ourselves and not to think about what God has told us to do. But we can follow Him without the fear of falling into sin only by renewing our minds.
“Your mind is very similar to a computer and it is programmed to be selfish, it was programmed to think only about yourself, it was programmed to only look at things from your own selfish perspective. It was programmed to just do things on your own and only turn to God when you’re in absolutely dire straits. It was programmed raw and you’re going to continue to have some of the same lust and desires and things that you had before you got born again until you renew your mind.”
