By the Renewing of Your Minds

Romans 12:2 tells us that becoming Christ-like involves your mind! To increase your understanding, start with the Bible.

  • Read leisurely (give yourself time).
  • Read big portions.
  • Notice literary "style" (Poetry? History?)
  • Avoid hasty conclusions about meaning and application.
  • Notice your heart's responses (and take them to God in prayer).
  • Jot notes of observations and questions (but don't get bogged down in note-taking).

These additional books and magazines help to increase your mind and grow in the likeness of Christ.
