The Garden of Your Mind

“…take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5b

When God made Man and put him in the Garden of Eden, He also gave Man a formal responsibility of tending to it.

Adam, the first man, was tasked with the job of ensuring that the animals were named. He needed to carry out landscaping by pruning the trees. In fact, when he found out that the serpent was tempting his wife with the fruit from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, he had the responsibility to deal with the serpent.

The Word of God admonishes us to subject every thought to the lordship of Jesus Christ. This means that we are to tend to the garden of our minds. This means that we are responsible for removing the weeds of discouragement that choke out hope and killing the serpents of deceit that snuff out our destinies.

Like Adam, we need to be mindful the type of fruit we are to avoid and consume only those that are wholesome for us. We are called to be excellent stewards of the garden of our minds.

Theology-to-go How are you in your “garden stewardship”?

Is your garden full of thorns and thistles that prevent healthy crops and fruits from growing?

Have you worked with the Holy Spirit to allow pruning of specific areas of your life so that you can bear “much fruit” for Christ?

What areas of the garden have you not allowed God to visit? Let’s set our gardening accounts right today.
