Be Transformed

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.

—Romans 12:2
Do you ever find yourself in a place where deep inside you know you don’t fit in?

Like being in a grocery store when a group of marathon runners come down the aisle to purchase water and all you’ve ever done is walk your dog. 

You don’t fit in.  

Or maybe while visiting at a friend’s house the conversation turns to the big game on television the night before. Everyone has seen it–except you. There’s not much you can say. 

You don’t fit in. 

There are so many situations where we find ourselves to be different. 

That’s okay. 

We can’t all be runners or sports fans or scientists or artists. 

We don’t have to conform to everyone. 

Spiritually, we don’t have to be like everyone else, either. 

We don’t have to conform to the world. 

We can be changed and transformed to think in the way that is pleasing to God. 

When we are changed, we become different. 

We stand out. 

We don’t fit in with the world. 

Instead, we fit in with God…
