Transformed




I love the way Romans 12: 2 reads in the Amplified Bible... And do not be conformed to this world (this age) [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the [entire] renewing of your mind(by it's new ideals and its new attitude) [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you].

This is it (along with the header) from the Message - let's strive to be different from the world; stopping blending in. Be the best you, you can be! In the words of Paul, let's turn our world up-side-down!

Place Your Life Before God

So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.

Be blessed and be a blessing!
