LESSON INTRODUCTION: The mind of Christ is the divine ability to be aware of happenings, to focus one’s thoughts and to proffer solutions to human challenges. In Luke 7:11-15, there was a funeral procession of a young man, the only child of a widow, Jesus knew that this woman needed immediate intervention which He provided by bringing her child back to life. That is the mind to help and to bear burdens.

LESSON AIM: To explain to members the need for them to have the mind of Christ that inclines to people’s sufferings and agitations.

TEACHING OBJECTIVES: At the end of the lesson, members should be able to know:

  1. What the mind of Christ is.
  2. How believers’ minds have to be renewed.

TEXT REVIEW: John 4:31-34

a. Believers ought to understand the urgency of divine assignments.
b. Doing God’s will must be our daily target.
c. Know that the harvest is ripe but labourers are few.


Every believer’s attitude should be the same that Christ Jesus had. Our purpose of living must be channeled towards Christ’s mandate,

The Mind of Christ is the mind of;
i. compassion towards people – Luke 7:14.
ii. bearing other’s burden – Galatians 6:2.
iii. rescuing people from suffering and pain – Matthew 8:1-3; Mark 5:30-34; John 5:5-9.
iv. restoring wasted years – Joel 2:28.
v. effecting believers’ dominion over evil powers – Colossians 2:14-15; Luke 10:19.
vi. seeing believers through the journey of life – Hebrew 13:5; John 14:16.
vii. establishing His covenant with the believers – Ezekiel 16:60.
viii. paying of a costly price to effect believer’s freedom -1 Corinthians 6:20, 7:23.


To renew means to make new again, to restore to original condition, to begin afresh. To renew your mind, you have to;

  1. Be born again – John 3:16.
  2. Crucify the old nature – II Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20.
  3. Disconnect yourself totally from worldly things – Philippians 2:15.
  4. Quit worldly behaviour and customs – Romans 12:2.
  5. Be transformed by changing the way you think and have a godly lifestyle.
  6. Study the Word of God-II Timothy 2:15.
  7. Make new friends – Ephesians 5:11.

ACTIVITY: Members should mention those things required to renew one’s mind.

SUMMARY: Renewal of mind starts with daily communion with God through the study of the scripture, fellowship with other believers and total cleansing with the shed blood at Calvary.

CONCLUSION: “Awake, awake, put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the Holy City: for henceforth there shall no more come into thee uncircumcised and the unclean” Isaiah 52:1


  1. Father, please help us to have the mind of Christ always.
  2. Awake my glory, no more shame for me in Jesus’ name.
  3. Everything that is dried in my life is terminated now.
  4. Father, let every effort of the enemy against our lives be terminated.
  5. Father, lead me to the source of my breakthroughs this week Father, please, renew my mind in Jesus’ name.
