IMAGE (pt. 2): Renew Your Mind
Last week was heavy. On the blog, there was much discussion about the image lies that sisters have believed—and, to some extent, still believe. The stories are painful. The hurt is real. The lies run deep.
But praise God, there’s no deep place that God can’t reach. There’s no hurt He can’t heal. Jesus changes everything.
As I prepared for part two of this study, I went from feeling sad about the stories to rejoicing over the truth that sets us free. We don’t have to remain captive to lies we’ve been told. Instead, armed with truth, we can turn the tables and take the lies captive unto the obedience of Christ (2 Corinthians 10:5).
My own mind has been renewed as I’ve studied and meditated on true image. I encourage you to not only watch this video but to share it with other women. (You would be surprised how many have been affected by image lies.) The overarching message of the video is the Gospel of Jesus Christ, “the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16). Apart from Jesus, we cannot hope to walk in the truth. But in salvation is healing and restoration and freedom. Renewing our minds is key to that journey.
Although the video may not come through in the emails, I’m including it within the post for the sake of the blog. If you’re receiving this in your inbox, the link to the video is HERE.
After the video, feel free to discuss whatever strikes you in the comment section. But here are some starter questions:
Prior to knowing Jesus, did you measure yourself against others, or maybe even tear down others in order to build up yourself, for the sake of image?
Can you tell that you’re being transformed from glory to glory into the image of Jesus? If so, how?
