Training Our Powers of Discernment

We spent significant time last week exploring the foundations of a victorious mindset from 1 John 5:1-5...

  1. Believing that Jesus is the Christ
  2. Being born again
  3. Loving God
  4. Obeying God's commandments
  5. Knowing his commandments are not burdensome

...developing a victorious mindset towards people, worship, evangelism, and personal commitment.

In one word, our entire series was all about PERSPECTIVE (“my view of the world and how the things of this world relate to one another”).

Connecting the dots:

  1. My Creator wants me to have an informed perspective (1 John 5:1-5; 1 Cor 15:57; Phil 4:13)
  2. My perspective is shaped by my ability and willingness to discern (“to perceive, to distinguish mentally, to recognize the true value of a person, place, thing, or opportunity”)
  3. When I read God’s word, I’m not only discerning, I’m being discerned! (Heb 4:12-13)
  4. Since we don’t always discern as we should, our perspective suffers (Heb 5:11-14)

If I don’t have the victorious mindset available in Jesus, what needs attention?
