Ronans 12:2 has been cropping up a number of times in the past 2-3 weeks.
In his message yesterday, Craig spoke to us about applying God's Word. He asked the question, "What does Jesus want to do in us? And then?"
There us more to being follower of Christ than being born again. He wants to mature us and make us useful to Him.
There is a process that takes place to be moved from the pattern of this world and being transformed into His pattern, His will for us. Our worldview changes as He matures us.
Paul writes: "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind." (Romans 12:2a)
As we mature in Him, our thinking is changed. Not only that, but we get to know His will for us. "Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will." (Romans 12:2b)
The implication of this is that application is required on our part.
This week, as we open our minds to God's Word, let us actively apply it to our daily walk with Him.
Have a good week.
