Scripture 2 Corinthians 10:5
Scripture. Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV
Paul here in this scripture verse written to the Corinthian believers, gives us valuable instruction as to what to do to become pleasing in God's sight.
We know that God's Son has died for us. The Way has been opened, and all may come and accept the invitation to eternal life.
Is God a fool that we should accept His gift and then walk all over His Kingdom continuing on in our sinful lifestyles?
He is Immortal, not mortal like us. Great reverence should be given to Him. He created the soul and then He created the body to house the soul.
There is none higher than Him. All things are under Him. He holds all the Power, everywhere.
Yet, He gives us freedom to choose Him. These attributes of God should make us aware that He will not trifle with us. He has made a Way and we can choose to accept that Way with all it's blessings or we can choose to stay bound to evil and continue living as a puppet of satan.
Yes, Friend, we must bring into captivity and cast out of our life, all vain imaginations that we have dreamt up with the help of the demonic army.
Read and study God's Word to find the Truth.
Lord, thank You for the freedom to make a choice for You. Help me to cast down every high thought that comes to steal away my Salvation. Amen.
