Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2 (ESV)
Transformation is changed from the inside out.
Paul tells us the strategy for accomplishing it:
The renewing of our minds.
Making our minds new.
New thoughts. New attitudes.
New approaches. New goals.
The will of God does not conform to the world.
The good does not conform to the world.
The acceptable does not conform to the world.
The perfect does not conform to the world.
If we want to figure out God’s will,
If we want to be, to pursue the good, the acceptable and the perfect.
We need transformation.
The Holy Spirit’s power
Proves to us and the rest of the world
That salvation changes everything about us.
Are you being transformed?
