The purpose of this blog is to challenge and encourage readers to take every thought “captive to the obedience of Christ.” My goal is to create a sense of Kingdom urgency by reflecting on Scripture, theology and spirituality. We are called to love, obey, and worship God with our total personality which certainly includes our thoughts. Paul’s Corinthian letter has been formative for my faith journey, especially verses 3-5.
Here’s an excerpt from the New King James Version.
3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, 2 Corinthians 10:3-5, NKJV
