The Daily Breath of God
Thursday, April 24 2014
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 prove what God's will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2There is a good reason to not conform any longer to the pattern of this world. Pride is the pattern of this world and pride is the enemy of grace. The two are never found occupying the same space. But here is our great relief to our problem, it is the living power of God’s love which is greater than our sin, it is called grace. Grace will always refresh and renew the way we see ourselves and others. Transformed (metamorphosis) is the process we see in a caterpillar becoming a butterfly. Butterflies see their world in which they have lived from a totally different view and respond with beauty and kindness. God’s grace gives the same drastic change in how we see our life and situations. On this new day enjoy the freedom of grace in how you process the life around you. You will find in grace joy, laughter, peace and encouragement in how you speak and act. Those around you will see this beauty through you and know it as good and pleasing. Thoughts of grace are always refreshing to you as well as those around you.
