“Think the same way that Christ Jesus thought.” Phil. 2:5

RENEW-  Reprogram your life by renewing your mind. 

“But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And on His law [His precepts and teachings] he [habitually] meditates day and night.” Psalm 1:2 (AMP)

“Don’t copy the behavior and customs (thinking pattern) of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think...". Romans 12:2 (NLT)

“Be constantly renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh mental and spiritual attitude].”  Ephesians 4:23 (AMP)
