Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 (NIV)
We were created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27). We have the ability to change the world around us. We have the power to transform our lives and influence the lives of others. Our words and deeds have an impact on the world we live in.
We have to know the will of God to know how to influence the world the way He created us to. The way to accomplish this is by renewing our mind and not conforming to the world around us. We are to help the world conform to God’s plan. To help us renew our mind, we can spend time in God’s word, spend time with other believers and spend time in prayer. This will help us transform ourselves and the world we live in.
Prayer: God, thank you for reminding me of the importance of renewing my mind. Show me the areas where I need to change my thinking. Teach me how to know your good, pleasing and perfect will. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
