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 12:2 NIV
One of the most miserable individuals on the earth is a man or woman of God who chooses to conform his or her thinking to the pattern of this world. That is the carbon monoxide to relationships and the enemy of grace. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world… Being conformed to the pattern of this world and grace are never found occupying the same space. But here is our great relief to the problem, it is the living power of God’s love which is greater than our sin, it is called grace. Grace will always renew the way we see ourselves and others. But be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Transformed (metamorphosis) is the process we see in a caterpillar becoming a butterfly. God’s grace gives the same drastic change in how we think and therefore how we can feel. Then you will be able to test and prove what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will. Today by his grace may you choose to be transformed by the renewing of your mind, then you will discover a will that is greater than your own. You will find in grace joy, laughter, peace and encouragement in how you experience life. Enjoy!
