How to Return to a Pure Heart and Mind


Our minds are constantly bombarded by things of this world. We hear degrading lyrics on the radio, watch sexually demeaning shows on television, and even read discouraging posts as we scroll through our social media accounts. Everywhere we turn, our minds are exposed to things that attack our hearts.

But this was never God’s intention. He meant for his people to live in a world of love and peace and encouragement and hope. So how can we strive to reclaim that way of living that God desires for us?

Romans 12:2 says, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Basically, it begins with our minds. Finding purity and peace begins with transforming what we choose to dwell on and think about and pursue.

So maybe it’s time to change the radio station, to put on a different movie, or to turn off your phone for a little while and simply spend time reading the bible. Because there’s no better place to renew your mind than in God’s word!
