Do Not Conform

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

Do you know anyone who has conformed to the pattern of this world?

Do you know anyone who has not?

The dictionary states that a pattern is:

Anything fashioned or designed as a model or guide for something to be made.

How should we live our lives?

Every source of media—from theaters to cell phones—gives us a daily, even hourly, model for how our lives are to be made.

Are we, as Christians, to be conforming to the models of living set before us by the world?

No….

Instead, we are to have a new mind that is wanting to know God’s will for how we should be living.
