Have you ever had a cell phone, iPad, computer or other electronic toy wear down or out?
When this occurs you can send the electronic gizmo back to the manufacturer where it will be refurbished according to the manufacturer’s specifications . . .making it as good as new. . .at least, according to them.
Sometimes we need to be mentally and spiritually refurbished. . .sending us back to our manufacturer. . .Creator. . .for a makeover. . .do over or get over. . .whichever is more appropriate and needed.
If you have renovated an older house…you know it’s a process of changing those things that need changing.
You replace the old flooring with a new, more updated look and style.
You replace the old electrical wiring with new. . .to eliminate static interference from your electronics and to prevent the cabling from overheating and creating a fire hazard.
You replace the outdated exterior and interior wall colors with new vibrant colors and textures.
You replace the old appliances and furniture with new. . .to reflect changes in time and your taste.
The same parallel is true when we renew our minds.
We've got to take out the old way of thinking and put in the new. This is how we become successful and victorious in Christ. We take out the old and bring in the new.
