“We take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5).

“Growing up, I consistently heard this verse interpreted in negative terms. Take captive sinful thoughts and make them obedient to Christ. And that is half the battle. But if we see only the negative implications and not the positive possibilities, it becomes a half-truth. This verse is not just about capturing sinful thoughts and getting them out of our minds; it’s also about capturing creative thoughts and keeping them in our minds. It means stewarding every word, thought, impression, and revelation inspired by the Spirit of God” (p60).

It means stewarding every word, thought, impression, and revelation inspired by the Spirit of God.
