Today’s Message:Change Your Mind



Today’s Scripture

“Repent (think differently; change your mind, regretting your sins and changing your conduct), for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
(Matthew 3:2, AMP)

Change Your Mind

Do you have behaviors in your life that you want to stop or change? Maybe it’s a habit, a bad attitude, or even negative thoughts. No matter what you may want to change in your life, you have to start by changing your mind. You have to change your thinking so that your thoughts are in line with God’s thoughts. When you repent and make the decision to follow God in every area of your life, you open the door for His supernatural power to work. When you take control of your thought life, you are cooperating with that power that is at work in you.

Remember, your life will go in the direction of your thoughts. You can’t just allow any old thought or image to play in your mind. You have to choose right thoughts. The easiest way to change your thoughts is by speaking God’s Word. When you say “orange,” you probably won’t start thinking about an apple. In the same way, when you confess the Word of God, it will drive those negative, defeated thoughts away! Change your mind today by changing your words so you can move forward into the abundant life He has in store for you!

A Prayer for Today

“Father, today I choose to take captive every thought that is contrary to Your will. I repent for anything in my life that is displeasing to You. Empower me today by Your spirit so that I can bring honor to You in Jesus’ name. Amen.”


  1. All of the books contained in this selfsame bible were written after the accounts and most had been written centuries after, yet people believe these selfsame stories to be accurate despite their historical inaccuracies.
    The fact that the story tellers of the bible wrote down known places and historical events and placed their characters in them isn’t even a possibility to the believers is a true example of deep mental brainwashing.

    Wake up from your stupor and use your god given brain to think and question…think about it as your sit in church today. Carefully look round you and honestly ask yourselves how you became a Christian.

    Wake up study about self…wake up wake up!!

    • …… use your ” god given ” brains to think & question…. hmmm, which ‘god’ are you advocating here since you presumably don’t believe in ‘God the creator’

    • Only a fÓÓl believes that there’s an invisible dictator in the sky. In terms of being enslaved, we’re the liberated ones, you’re trapped in archaic, pre-scientific fantasy.

    • “Gods are fragile things; they may be killed by a whiff of science or a dose of common sense.”
      -Chapman Cohen (1868-1954)

    • @2.1 Lesa ni Palibe,
      Little knowledge is dangerous.
      You are deceitful, which whiff of Science are you referring to in your quote that discounts the supernatural being? I can tell you here and now that modern Science actually acknowledges the supernatural to explain the natural.

  2. Empowering message. Draws you near to God our creator. What better way than to hit resonance with the creator of the Universe.

  3. Religion is the TRUE evil… deprives us all of our rightful place in the natural world…it is the basis of all hate…..and yet so many honor it… poisons us all……IT HAS TO STOP!!!…before it kills us

    • @4.From Preacher to Atheist,
      Sounds like you have something in common with the Lord Jesus Christ. It was the religious people who persecuted and crucified him. Solution:- focus on God who created you and me. But then again you as and Atheist, I suppose you don’t believe there was a supernatural beginning, even when modern science acknowledges that.

  4. When I am on my dying bed I will summons a priest with the hopes I can convert him away from his Christian lie in my last breaths.

  5. HELLOOOO!!!! Delusional man made god. Snide man promotes superstitions to control the naive. Religion has got the naive by the balls.

  6. ‘con- pastor’ s use potassium permanganate to convert water into blood. They are masters in the game of conman ship.

  7. Have you ever wondered how some pastors start a church and then become wealthy living in flash houses and driving luxury cars?

  8. Excerpts from Marjoe (1972 documentary)

    Marjoe, the fraud evangelist from the 70s! Offering a documentary film crew unrestricted access to him during his final revival tour, Marjoe repeatedly admits on camera that he was a con-artist and reveals the tactics used by himself and other evangelists to swindle money from people.

  9. “Christians and thier faith” tsk…tsk…!!

    Someone needs to start the Minisrty of Common Sense.

    Praise Darwin.

  10. Thank goodness lots of people on here don’t believe in the invisible big foot of the sky. Religion has deprived man the common sense on reality.It is amazing that people are still using the Bible or any other religious book as a standard to better their lives. you would think that something that was written in the dark ages remains in the past but I guess some things never change.

    • “We must question the story logic of having an all-powerful god who creates faulty humans and then blames them for his own mistakes.”
      -Eugene Wesley ‘Gene’ Roddenberry (1921-1991)

    • @13.1 SuperMan,
      “In light of current revelation by modern science about the existence of the supernatural, we must question the story logic of the 1920s that deny it” Cactus (now)

  11. Hi all,
    Why all comments that i see here is contrally to what it has been said?
    I never knew if zambia still with people cound be contrally to God by bringing Science and Histories as compare to the Word of God. What the man has said is true to your life. It does not mater how educated and wealth you are. God has spoken. Focus on what you think is right. Please don’t hesist to comment nonses,evil people.

    • Atheism is nothing more than the noises reasonable people make when in the presence of religious dogma.

  12. One stupid Boy was complating God and he said the is a lot of mistakes in the bible. I found my answer to my life in the Science, mathematics, physics, chemistry, history. When asked why? He they give the answer to my life and they were written by men. So who wrote the bible ? He answred it men! Aha. Are you reading the same books you read 10 years? So why is it that your textbooks you mentioned are revealed every 10 years and they even updated. The bible has not changed in the last 2000 years

  13. “THE” bible is a sick product of primitive men designed to:

    ? control ignorant people;

    ? manipulate them to kill, râpe and plunder;

    ? to enslave people (non-Jews forever); and

    ? keep women in servitude to men.


    “When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said, “Let us pray.”
    We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land.”

    -Bishop Desmond Tutu (1931-)
