Gird Up The Loins Of Your Mind
1 Peter 1:13-16
Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.” (1 Peter 1:13-16)
God is calling you to gird up the loins of your mind. This means preparing your mind for battle. There are influences in this world that are seeking to pull your mind away from focusing on Jesus. These are influences that can intoxicate you and lure you away from God. There is a war for your mind. God is calling you to be sober in your mind, to focus on His grace, and to live a life of holiness.
