Reprogrammed For Righteousness

Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against You. [Psalm 119:11]

A man once said to me, “I’ve come to Christ, but I still have so much garbage in my mind. How do I clean it out?” I answered him, “You’ve been programmed by the world for a long time, so your mind is full of filth. Therefore, it has to be reprogrammed— completely cleansed.”

The only way to reprogram your mind with God’s righteousness is to read, study, and meditate on the Word of God. “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord” (Col. 3:16).

If you’re a Christian, and you submit to the Holy Spirit as you study Scripture, you will have a reprogrammed mind that focuses on God’s righteousness and helps you live accordingly (Rom. 12:1–2; Phil. 4:8).

    The moment we accept Christ as our Lord and Savior, we have become a new creation. Therefore the old things which have turned our hearts into a garbage dump must be put out. Let us move the filth of the world out and put in its place the wonders of God which we will find in His Holy Word.
