It has been commonly said that aerodynamically a bumble bee should not be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway. Neither science or physics supports this inspirational idea and in fact, we see bumble bees flying all the time. However, it is true that our belief either weighs us down or gives us wings.
If I believe I am trapped, then I am. If I believe that my life has no value, I will continue to be in situations that seemingly confirm my flawed ideology. However, we can change what we believe. Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians 2:16 that those who have surrendered their lives to God through the grace of Jesus Christ are given the mind of Christ.
“Having the mind of Christ means we understand God’s plan in the world—to bring glory to Himself, restore creation to its original splendor, and provide salvation for sinners. It means we identify with Christ’s purpose “to seek and to save what was lost” (Luke 19:10). It means we share Jesus’ perspective of humility and obedience (Philippians 2:5-8), compassion (Matthew 9:36), and prayerful dependence on God (Luke 5:16).
In the verses leading up to 1 Corinthians 2:16, we note some truths concerning the mind of Christ:
1) The mind of Christ stands in sharp contrast to the wisdom of man (verses 5-6).
2) The mind of Christ involves wisdom from God, once hidden but now revealed (verse 7).
3) The mind of Christ is given to believers through the Spirit of God (verses 10-12).
4) The mind of Christ cannot be understood by those without the Spirit (verse 14).
5) The mind of Christ gives believers discernment in spiritual matters (verse 15).
In order to have the mind of Christ, one must first have saving faith in Christ (John 1:12; 1 John 5:12). After salvation, the believer lives a life under God’s influence. The Holy Spirit indwells and enlightens the believer, infusing him with wisdom—the mind of Christ. The believer bears a responsibility to yield to the Spirit’s leading (Ephesians 4:30) and to allow the Spirit to transform and renew his mind (Romans 12:1-2).” https://www.gotquestions.org/mind-of-Christ.html
With the mind of Christ, I will grow to believe that my life matters, and my legacy will continue telling the story of God’s glory and my redemption long after I am gone. If I believe in freedom, I will bring freedom to others. If I believe in joy, laughter will follow me. If I believe that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me and that I can make a difference in the world then I can be the change I wish to see.
