Text: Romans 12:1-2 KJV
1- I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.
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.
In part 1 of this devotional topic last week Tuesday (30th May, 2017@ www.raisedbygrace.wordpress.com), we considered that the major issues of this generation is that Christians easily conform with the world and that being transformed should be both within and without.
Today, by His grace we want to consider how to be transformed.
A simple story as illustration goes thus, a young man who was born in a ghetto and lived there many years was accustomed to a lifestyle of waking up everyday to fetch water in the neighbouring street, suddenly his environmental status changed as he relocated to a new apartment (duplex) in a serene environmental with adequate water facility in the house for 24 hours daily, but surprisingly when he wakes after his first night in the new apartment, he walked out with a bucket in his hand to fetch water as usual in the neighbouring street before he came to his senses that water runs constantly in his new apartment.
From the story above, the young man’s mind has not be renewed to fit in his new environment, this is what Paul explains from our text above, that don’t be conformed to this world’s lifestyle but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Take note of the continuous tense “RENEWING”, meaning it does not stop so long we are still living in earth. This is basically because the influence of the external environment (world) on your inward environment (mind & spirit) is often higher and easier than the influence from your within to without. Hence the need for constant of renewing you mind through continuous fellowship with God.
In summary,
* Don’t ever be conformed to the world (conformity with the world is enmity with God)
* Be transformed both within and without (your without is a reflection of your within)
* Being transformed starts by renewing your mind
* Mind renewal process is continuous so long you are still living in this world
* God bless you
* Father, I pray by your mercy that the world will not harvest my soul for hell in Jesus Name
* This morning I receive grace for constant fellowship with you Lord, in Jesus Name.
