22: Renewing Your Mind

Tue Aug 01 2017 (58:25)

This interview focuses on Dennis Jernigan's new book, Renewing Your Mind: Identity and the Matter of Choice. Dennis addresses the following question: How does one walk out of one identity and into another? Dennis gets that question a lot.


At one time, Dennis felt attracted to other men. When he began to replace the lies concerning himself with the truth of God’s Word, something close to miraculous began to take place: his feelings began to change! What Dennis has discovered is that the main battle of his life is the mental battle of discovering his true identity according to God’s Word. In the process of seeking God relationally, Dennis discovered the power of God’s Word to transform his mind. Two specific passages gave him strength to pursue God for a change in his thinking, and the end result is a brand new identity not defined by feelings, temptations, circumstances, other people or groups, or even himself. Dennis Jernigan is defined by his Maker.
