Hi everyone! Today I thought I would mix it up a little, and post a brief Bible journaling process video for you all! This is my first time creating a process video… and I hope to be doing more of them in the future. Let me know if you like it!
1 Corinthians 2:16 Process Video
In this video, I journaled 1 Corinthians 2:16 – “…but we have the mind of Christ.” I chose this verse because it connected with the devotional post on Friday. (If you missed it, don’t forget to check it out!)
Why I journaled it…
I choose this specific verse from 1 Corinthians 2 because, well, it is one of my favorites. At least since two years ago. I had read it countless times before that, but it never really clicked with me until then. One of my key reasons for loving it is because it especially applies to academics – which, as anyone who knows me will tell you, I love.
Almost two years ago, I was in a wonderful homeschool class with only three other kids and our tutor. I had a similar situation this past year, and what I have loved about both of these years was that we all had a chance to form a fantastic bond. We would often read devotionals together as a class, and this verse was one of those devotionals two years back. It really struck me as relevant then, because I felt that our class aptly represented this tight bond that we have as Christians. As in this past year as well, I had the opportunity to see the Christian bond in practice, while we would all work together to learn more in school.
…which brings me to my next point.
Do you ever wonder why it says we have the mind of Christ? Have you ever thought about the consequences of Paul using that specific word? Why doesn’t it say the spirit of Christ, or the heart of Christ?
He uses the word mind because that’s exactly what he means.
As I have said in previous posts, when we accept Christ’s identity, he transforms our entire body – not just our soul. That’s pretty amazing, when you really think about it. Personally, this verse is one of my favorites because it encourages and empowers me – and it should empower you, too!
This verse is immensely practical. It has really challenged me to bring my faith outside of Sundays and into everyday life as a student. You don’t know how many times I have prayed before writing essays, taking tests, or giving school presentations. School is tough, and I pray for wisdom as much as possible. Not because it’s “good luck”, but because there is power behind God’s promise.
God promises to not just be there for you in church, but to be there always – even in the most basic tasks of the day. Keep that in mind today, and remember that you don’t just have the spirit of Christ – you also have His mind.
Have a great weekend, and see you on Monday!
