5. Is It “Lovely”?
6. Is It “Admirable”?

8. Is It “Praiseworthy”?

1. Renew Your Mind.
                                             Romans 12:2
            “Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so             that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.”
2. Set Your Mind.
                                            Colossians 3:2
                            “Set your minds on what is above, not on what is on the earth.”
3. Surrender Your Mind.
                                     2 Corinthians 10
                          4. since the weapons of our warfare are not worldly, but are powerful through                           God for the demolition of strongholds. We demolish arguments 5. and every                               high-minded thing that is raised up against the knowledge of God, taking every                              thought captive to obey Christ.
