Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Philippians 4:8 KJV
What we choose to think is critical. The Christian is admonished to, “Bring every thought captive to the knowledge of Christ.”
Refusing to entertain any thought that is not true, pure, lovely, or a good report is key to a Spirit-filled, Spirit-led, joy filled, peaceful life. This starts with allowing the agape love of God to rule in your heart.
Then, and only then, can forgiveness flow fully and freely in, and through your life. This removes all bitterness, anger, and strife from your life and gives place to righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
Thinking “on these things,” will cause your life to flourish.
