Transformed By The Truth
Offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and
pleasing to God-this is your true and proper worship.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be
transformed by the renewing of your mind.
What does it mean to be transformed by the truth? Romans 12:1-2
can be divided into three goals for us to pursue: present your body
as a living sacrifice; do not be conformed to the world; be transformed
by the renewing of your mind.
Being a living sacrifice is how we honor God-we are to live in
a way that glorifies Him. Not conforming to the world means that
we refuse to live according to the faulty standards and practices of
our fallen peers.
Transformation of our minds signifies that we adopt a new way
of thinking-replacing our selfish and distorted thought patterns
with God's truth.
And all together, it indicates that you are made better-gloriously
changed as the Lord directs. This will be challenging, but is totally
worthwhile. So be a living sacrifice and trust Him to do astounding
things in you.
Lord, mold my life and transform my mind so that I
may become the person You created me to be, amen.
