Accountable to God: Day 9

Today’s Text:  Read Romans 12:2

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”  Romans 12:2

 

Now we are going to talk about an incredible word…

 

Transformation- Instead of being conformed to the pattern of the world, God wants us to be transformed.  He is the one that wants to do it.  He wants to transform us.  Isn’t that incredible?  You can’t change on your own.  You can’t be what God wants you to be on your own.  God wants to do this work in you!  This transformation says that we want God to set our standards and priorities from the inside out.  We are no longer motivated by our flesh, but by the Spirit of God inside of us.  How does this happen?  By the renewing of our mind.  God uses His Word to help us know how to think and as a result how to act.  Why?  So that we may be able to “prove” or discern “what is that good and acceptable perfect will of God.”

 

Application:

 

For you to be transformed by God, you must allow Him to renew your mind.  How does that happen?  You’ve got to allow God’s Word to influence and change your thinking and actions.  Today, spend a few extra moments in God’s Word.
