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. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2 NLT<P>
What is a transformed life?
A life transformed no longer copies the behaviors and customs of this world. The transformed life is an Ambassador to this world. This world is not his home. His homeland is heaven with the Lord. His father is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
The transformed life is learning God’s will. God’s will is good, pleasing, and perfect. Why would you not want a transformed life? The transformed life is changing the way you think and battles with your old selfish life. It is by the grace of God we are victorious over the selfish desires of the old life. Jesus Christ paid the price and we are victorious over the past regrets, shame, fear and guilt. We are no longer slaves and prisoners to our old thinking . The thoughts, customs, behaviors and ways are gone by the renewing of our thinking and mind.
This renewing is through the washing of God’s word in your thought and prayer life. As you begin to trust God’s good and pleasing will for your life, your thinking will be totally changed. Your desire to know God’s good, pleasing and perfect will becomes greater than the old selfish life.
Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you and develops well-formed character and maturity in you.
God’s will for your life is good, pleasing and perfect. Walk today knowing He is working all things to your good because you love HIM and are called according to HIS PURPOSE. You are a transformed child of God no longer living your life but Christ is living HIS PURPOSE in you.
