Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
1 Peter 1:13 (ESV)
We should never allow our minds to become lazy, idle or indifferent with regard to what is true about us in Christ. To be sober-minded is to be continuously filled with what the Word declares over us. And so let us keep our minds actively focused on the truth of God’s Word, and let us be actively on guard against the lies and deceptions of the enemy that would seek to invade our thinking. May we be encouraged that our confident assurance is not in ourselves, but in the grace of our Lord and everything He has already made available to us.
