Memory Verse Monday – Week 28

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2

 

Last week we looked at Romans 12:1 and how to offer our lives as a living sacrifice. I’m not sure about you, but I find these couple of verses in Romans 12 to be bit ambitious. Why is a grace-filled God, expecting so much from us? Do not conform to the world, be transformed, good and acceptable will of God. Seems like lofty goals for mortal humans.

 

This is why we need to look at Scripture from the angle of the Author. Not Paul, but the inspired Author, God Himself. God has His standards, His characteristics. He requires and expects these standards in all of His creation. He is unchanging, which means His standards for us are not going to change either.

 

That is why, even though we’ve been saved by grace, we need to live a transformed life. We can’t keep doing the same things we did before. Obedience to God’s word plays a major role in living this set apart life. (1 Peter 1:14)

 

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2 Memory Verse Monday - Week28

 

We need to live changed lives. It’s difficult and challenging but by the help of the Holy Spirit, we can do it.

I enjoy learning from God’s word, it amazes me, the wisdom and treasures of God and the way He reveals them to me day after day in a profound manner. In this space I share with you what I’ve learnt through my time with the Word. I earnestly believe that learning alone isn’t sufficient but walking in the word is crucial in a believer’s life. As much as I desire to walk in the word, it’s not always easy. My hope is to encourage you, my dear friend, in your walk with God with words that He has used to strengthen my own walk with Him.
