Take captive every thought...
In 2 Corinthians Paul talks about us living by different standards than the rest of the world... and one thing he mentions is how as Christians we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. (2 Cor.10:5)
While it's true we need to take our wrong-thoughts captive and make them obey, there's a positive spin that we can also apply here... Mark Batterson taught me in his book Primal, that we need to take captive the good thoughts and ideas too!
We need to capture them [in words or pictures] and act on them.
A past coworker used to warn me about letting good things I had started just 'die on the vine'.. She was right... in business and personally- may we take captive these thoughts & ideas and make them obedient to Christ.
Lord, please fulfill in us that which you have set out to fulfill!
Thank you that no word of yours returns void, but it always completes that which it set out to accomplish! (Isaiah 55:11)
