Be Transformed


romans12_2

By Dan Polecheck

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is — his good, pleasing, and perfect will. – Romans 12:2

Don’t let the world determine who you are as a person. It is natural to want to conform to the outside world. But, remember that the world is the battle ground where spiritual battles are fought. Listening to the untruths and false teachings of the world is dangerous because we are fed messages constantly that distort God’s truth and holy values. But rather than being disturbed by the the world just being the world, let’s be transformed by renewing our minds and doing what Paul said he did — take every thought, every word, captive for Christ. When we think about tithing we normally think about giving ten percent of our income, but giving ten percent of our totally undivided thought time to the things of God is just as important, or maybe even more important than our financial tithe.
