Finally, Brothers. . .

As I mentioned below, for the past several weeks I have been leading a small group through the book "Disciplines of a Godly Man". Tonight we discussed one of my favorite chapters up to this point: The Discipline of Mind. The chapter was centered around Philippians 4:8:
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
The author, Kent Hughes, also makes a profound statement:
"It is impossible for any Christian who spends the bulk of his evenings, month after month, week upon week, day in and day out watching the major TV networks or contemporary videos to have a Christian mind. This is always true of all Christians in every situation."

In a world where raunchy media is commmonplace and waiting to fill our minds, please pray that the Holy Spirt would be made real in our lives to help filter out all the garbage.

Also, Thank you for your partnership. I am grateful for all of you! Merry Christmas!
