“.. but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2).
How does God transform our minds?
God transforms our minds with His Word. As we read and absorb His Word our minds become more spiritual minded. Patriot students and alumni already know this. They have experienced it in their lives.
The transformation of each believer’s life began with God’s Word being heard and received by the new believer. The sanctification process began and continues still. As each believer absorbs God’s Word their mind is filled with spiritual thoughts and knowledge. You know this. Why are we reminding you?
We sometimes forget that the not-yet and new believers need to hear God’s Word. Our part in the believer’s discipleship can get off track. Ministers can begin to ‘major on the minors’. Sometimes programs supersede the reading of the Word. One can even forget to put the focus on planting the seed of God’s Word in the hearts and minds of others.
Secondly, Patriot’s courses are aimed at vocational metamorphosis. No matter what your vocation in life is presently, it can be transformed through diligent study at Patriot Bible University or Patriot School of the Bible.
Patriot students have been called into ministry. Be a transformer not a conformer.
