Before The Foundation – The Parable Of The Talents Part 7
The Bible contains truths that bend our natural mind. It can be frustrating to think about the fact that Jesus was apart of the creation, in the beginning, He existed in eternity before He ever came to the earth as a man. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit have no beginning, they have always been and always will be. Jesus is the exact expression of God in the earth, there is no greater example. When Jesus walked the earth He would often teach people in parables, there is a passage of Scripture found in Matthew 13:34, 35 that says, “All these things Jesus spoke to the multitude in parables; and without a parable He did not speak to them, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying:” “I will open My mouth in parables: I will utter things kept secret from the foundation of the world.” In this series, we will discover truths that have existed before time that will transform our present life as we apply them.
Part 7 – Proverbs 4:23 Be careful what you think because your thoughts run your life – NCV. One of the talents the Lord has given us is our souls or our minds. To be effective in the Kingdom of God we need to have an understanding of God’s purpose for our minds and how we are to manage them for His work. I believe we will give an account for how we used our minds.
