Every animal you can think of -- mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, amphibians -- has a brain. But the human brain is unique. It gives us the power to think, plan, speak, imagine... It is truly an amazing organ.

The brain performs an incredible number of tasks:­

It controls body temperature, blood pressure, heart rate and breathing.

It accepts a constant flow of information about the world around you from your senses (seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching).

It handles physical motion when walking, talking, standing or sitting.

It lets you think, dream, reason and experience emotions.

All of these tasks are coordinated, controlled and regulated by an organ that is about the size of a small head of cauliflower: your brain.

EVERY scrap of information that comes at us, EVERYTHING that we choose to do, EVERYTHING that we do involuntarily, EVERYTHING has to be processed through the brain.

So, do you see why this word, ’repent,’ is so important? What we THINK matters! What we think about God, what we think about Jesus, what we think about sin MATTERS!

It matters so much that Jesus says, unless we change the way we think, THERE IS NO HOPE—We, too, will perish!
