Romans 12:2

"Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect." ESV

What does it mean to be conformed to this world? It means getting our thoughts and behavior in line with those of the world. It means getting ourselves as similar to the rest of the world as we possibly can. The Word says not to do that! It says to be transformed. So, what does that mean? It is defined as a complete change of nature or character, becoming someone different than we were before. The Word says we can accomplish this by renewing our minds. In our limited human strength we cannot do this on our own. We are dependent on the Lord and His saving grace to renew our minds and to become new creatures.

Heavenly Father, we ask forgiveness for conforming to this world and giving importance to what others think. We thank You for salvation through faith in Jesus Christ so that can become transformed into Your likeness. In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
