“where the men at?” If you’ve said it, why? If
you’ve heard it, what was your response
thoughts about it?
● What’s one point/thought (or more) that stuck
with you from Pastor Tim’s message on
When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought
like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became
a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.
1 Corinthians 13:11 (TNIV)
34 A new commandment I give to you, that you
love one another, even as I have loved you, that
you also love one another.
35 By this all men will know that you are My
disciples, if you have love for one another.”
How you treat something expresses the value
you place on that thing. The same can be said for
our relationships as men and women. Whether
you are married or single, how you treat the
opposite sex expresses how much of a value they
are to you. No matter how society and experiences
have shaped our views, both positive and negative,
of one another, God is calling us to love each other
the way He intended and designed our
relationships to work best. In order to know and be
able to live out God’s vision of valuing each other
we must renew our minds to think differently and
make up our mind’s to behave differently.
1. RENEW YOUR MIND TO THINK DIFFERENTLY
● Romans 12:1-2
● Matthew 5:27-29
We have all heard the adage, “Garbage in,
garbage out,” or “You are what you eat”. Although
these are mainly applied to the health of our bodies,
let’s apply this logic to the diet of our minds. What
are we feeding our minds? When we go to another
movie, we listen to another song, we look at another
television ad, we go to another internet site, and we
get the same message: take me, use me, do anything
you want to with me, and then discard me or trade
me in for another one. That’s the message we get day
after day after day, week after week after week about
each other. Our minds need to be renewed.
● What types of media reinforce the notion that
women are commodities and how does it (media)
affect your view of the opposite sex, both positive
● How would you help a struggling friend in the
process if renewing their mind?
2. MAKE UP YOUR MIND TO BEHAVE DIFFERENTLY
● James 2:26
● 1 Timothy 5:1-2
Our actions will always speak louder than our
words. They will always show who we truly are
and what we really believe about each other.
Our faith, built on God’s Word, should be the
driving force of our actions. When it comes to
how we treat the opposite sex, we must not only
allow God’s Word to change our minds, but also
guide us in how to live. We should not merely
settle for just knowing better, we must make
up in our minds to do better.
● How would you help a friend practically
apply this verse?
1. If you are in a “good place” how can you help
someone you know who isn’t?
2. Is there room for growth for YOU when it comes
to renewing your mind and behavior? If so,
how do you intend to make forward progress?
