  • Lesson 1 - The Necessity of a Renewed Mind
    We are to be transformed by the renewing of our mind.  However, few of us really understand what that means.  We receive a new spirit when we are born again.  We receive a new body in the resurrection.  In between, we have the same soul, the same mind or thinking process that we had as a heathen.  The process of sanctification is the outworking of our salvation in our souls, which requires the renewing of our minds.  We cannot fulfill our calling, our destiny without a renewed mind.  Our natural mind cannot understand the things of the spirit.  This series of lessons teaches us how to cooperate with the Holy Sprit in renewing our minds.

  • Lesson 2 - Dealing with our Thinking Processes
    This lesson deals with the heathen mind's condition before knowing Christ and its effect on our thinking processes.  In the new birth we receive a new spirit, but we still have the same mind--the same thinking processes that we had as a heathen.  The result is that we operate with a carnal mind.  The thinking processes--the way we think--must be renewed in order for us to develop a spiritual mind.  The Kingdom of God comes into us and begins the renewal process as it grows.  There is immediate conflict between the way we think and the Kingdom of God.  Strongholds are exposed and dealt with during the renewing of our minds

  • Lesson 5 - Events, Processes, and Procedures
    Events trigger processes which are made up of multiple procedures to produce a desired outcome.  The event of salvation triggers the process of change, which includes the renewing of the mind, which is made up of the various procedures that move us to the corporate mind of Christ.  This lesson presents a picture of the overall process of renewing the mind and the expected outcome.

  • Lesson 6 - The Lamp of the Soul
    This lesson looks at the details of the process of enlightening our understanding using the typology of the 7 branched lamp or candlestick of the Holy Place of the Tabernacle.  The details of how our understanding lights our souls before we know Christ and how renewing the mind changes the light of our understanding after we know Christ.  Details are given of how the light of the kingdom of darkness in us is replaced by the light of the Holy Spirit.

  • Lesson 7 - Thoughts, Intents, & Action
    This lesson looks at the thoughts and intents of the heart and the resulting actions.  The Old Covenant dealt with our actions but the New deals with the thoughts and intents (motives) of the heart.  Becoming like Jesus means that our motives have to change.  The first step in the process of change, which is preparing us to fulfill our purpose and calling, is the renewing of the mind.

  • Lesson 8 - Heart & Mind
    This lesson takes a deeper look at the heart as the interface between soul and spirit.  The root problem for an inability to renew the mind lies in the heart  An unrenewed mind has incorrect thought about God, about man, and about self.  This creates various mindsets and causes us to be unable to know God properly.

  • Lesson 9 - Mindsets
    This lesson completes the Renewing the Mind Series.  It focuses on the various mindsets that are described in the Scriptures: carnal mindset, worldly mindset, haughty mindset, traditional mindset, and childish mindset.  Our mindset must be changed for us to progress to spiritual maturity.
