Encouragement for Today

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 ESV

When we don’t pay attention, we have the tendency to drift. Little by little, we get further off course. When we spend our time consuming worldly things, thoughts, and ideas, we will skew further and further away from the will of God. Where we spend our time directs our minds and actions.

God renews the mind.

Today, I want to encourage you to be transformed! God uses the Bible as a tool to renew us. The Bible contains instructions on how to live in a way that reflects Christ. Christians live differently from the world because they ARE different. They are set apart as God’s beloved children. Each and every day as opposition is encountered, be reminded that you are a citizen of heaven. That is why it is so important to spend time in the word of God and allow God to renew your mind.

Reflect – What corners of your mind have you allowed the world to influence?
