Conforming to Renew Your Minds/2
Romans 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of you mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
It was a miracle when Jesus fed the 5,000 with two fish and 5 loaves of bread.
After which he withdrew to a private time of prayer. Then he walked on water toward the 12 disciples on a boat. Peter’s faith was short, but I believe Peter remembered this incident later to realize his shortcomings.
Peter never bragged about his walking on water, probably he thought it showed his lack of faith not his strength of faith. I like to think of the strength of that faith not his weakness.
Peter was on the mount of transfiguration shortly after this incident. He was the first to speak when he saw Jesus, Moses and Elijah. On this sight Peter wanted to build a shrine but the shrine Jesus wanted was far greater than any tangible tabernacle anyone could build. Then, when God spoke, three leading disciples were afraid. And what did God say? “Be not afraid.”
These are the things that can cause the renewing of our minds in Christ. These are the things that are for his good, pleasing and perfect will.
