Enjoy the scriptures along with today's devotional on our thought life - the most private part of you - who are you, really? Today's devotional addresses a lot of the emails that I've been getting lately. I was going to list out the questions here and answer them but the Holy Spirit led me to speak from my heart and be who I am, in Christ Jesus -- Real and transparent.

Since you have been raised to new life with Christ, set your sights on the realities of heaven, where Christ sits at God's right hand in the place of honor and power. Let heaven fill your thoughts.

Throw off your old evil nature and your former way of Life, which is rotten through and through, full of lust and deception. Instead, there must be a spiritual renewal of your thoughts and attitudes.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable -- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy -- think about such things.
