"Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me" (John 14:21).
It struck me anew this morning how important it is for God's Word to be so strongly fixed in our minds that it becomes the dominant influence in our thoughts, our attitudes, and our actions. By bringing God's Word to bear on specific situations that arise in our lives we develop convictions. By knowing God's Word we thereby know God's will in a situation. It is through God's Word alone that our minds are reshaped and our values are renewed.
