“Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.”
Romans 12:2 (NLT)
It is so easy to allow secular thinking creep into our everyday living. David Kinniman, the president of the Barna Group, writes that “we live in a society that values fairness over justice, consuming over creating, fame over accomplishment, glamour over character, image over holiness, and entertainment over discernment.” How true. The Kingdom of God has values that are counter to those that have been embraced by modern society. So what can we do? The secret, Paul shares, is to allow God to constantly transform us by changing the way we think. As we pray, read the word, and commune with the Holy Spirit we will begin to see the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control become realities in our life. Peter shares as you gradually increase faith, moral excellence, spiritual knowledge, self-control, patient endurance, Godliness, brotherly affection and love for everyone, the more productive and useful you will be in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. So today, examine your life and let God transform you by changing the way you think.
Father, I need Your Holy Spirit to help me. I am so vulnerable. It is so easy for me to copy the behavior and customs of the world. Please help renew my mind and make me the person you want me to be.
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION & MEDITATION
God is transforming the way I think
Bring yourself to God in worship. As you meditate on His loving presence, let Him speak to your heart. Ask Him, “Lord, where do I need to change my thinking? What attitudes do I need to correct?” Wait on Him. Let Him speak to you. Listen to what He says. As you gain insight, repent and commit yourself to new behavior. Praise God that He is changing the way you think.
