BE MORE LIKE JESUS
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God. —Romans 12:2
The world system will seek to pressure you to conform to it. Its values are promoted all around us every day. Those of the world want us to be like them, but we were called out of the world and into the Kingdom of God’s Son. Since we were called out of the world’s system and into God’s Son’s Kingdom there is transformation taking place in our lives. This transformation happens because of our minds being renewed. We once lived in the world and thought like the world, but since we called on the Name of the Lord our thinking is being changed to be more like His.
How does this happen? It is by His Holy Spirit using the Word of God to transform us into being more like the Son of God for the glory of God. This is why it is so important to be in God’s Word constantly, listen to what He has to say and applying what we hear to life. When this happens there is transformation taking place.
When this transformation is taking place we are more apt to “be able to test and approve what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.” This transformation “by the renewing of your mind” must be taking place in order to know God’s will. Those who think they know God’s will without this transformation “by the renewing of your mind” taking place are being deceived— “Be doers of the word, and not hearers only. Otherwise, you are deceiving yourselves” (James 1:22).
Dear Father today may I be transforming to be more like my Lord Jesus. Yes may my mind be in the renewing process that I can understand Your will. Yes, may this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus. So be it! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j9YCvwthi7o
