Welcome. My name is Bro. Carl Fair and I am the current Senior Pastor for First Baptist Church Dardanelle. I hope these articles are a blessing to you and encourage your walk with Jesus.

Ephesians 4: 22-24

Humility, gentleness, and a desire for unity. All three of these are character traits of someone who has put off the old self and who is being renewed, or remade in their minds and their thinking. These are evidences of true salvation. Wonder why Paul wrote about our “minds” here? Our mind is where our soul or spirit lives. Our mind is where we develop desires. Our mind is where we determine our worldview. Our mind is the control center of our body. Our mind is where words are formed and sent out. Our mind is what tells my hands and feet to move a certain way. That is exactly why the devil continually tries to indoctrinate our kids in public schools and universities today. He knows if he can get into their minds early, he can influence their minds to lean toward unbelief in the things of God.

What about you? What are you putting in your mind, first thing in the morning? Facebook or God’s Word? Worldly things or Wordly things? How about a new challenge? For every minute we are in God’s Word, we can have a minute on Facebook.. or Instagram, or twitter… whatever it is in your life that consumes your time. Can you live with that challenge?

Father, we need your help again this morning. Help us to be good stewards of the time you give us. And help us to be renewed by your Word in our minds. Flow into us, so we can be humble and gentle, with a desire for unity. Thank you Jesus, for taking my sin away.

Verses 22-24. to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires,and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.
