Faith Comes By Hearing...

A High Mind


When apostles preached Christ in Thessalonica, the unbelievers formed a mob led by some low down evil men, stirred up a riot, set the city in an uproar, assaulted the home where the apostles were staying and then had the audacity to accuse them of ‘turning the world upside down’ (Acts 17). The reality of living a life following Jesus Christ will eventually convince the true believer that the way that the world perceives things is exactly the opposite of how things really are. The Christians were in fact turning things right-side up but the masses, perceiving themselves as right-side up, saw the Christians as the antithesis of what they determined to be real and that clash will always result in contention which will ultimately lead to violence. The definition of the word ‘perception’ is: the way you think about or understand someone or something. Perception is a spiritual concept and the purpose of the gospel is to transform our minds, which is a spiritual process, so that we can perceive the mind of God. The problem is, without the mind of the one true God, a person will be living in a false perception that is being empowered by A High Mind.
