[The Glory Unveiled]
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is —his good, pleasing and perfect will. ( Romans 12:2 )
Conformers do not transform and transformers make others conform. Every institution or system has its own tradition and norms. These invisible yet vicious patterns that are woven into the fabric of every system and institution is the underlying factor for the culture of such places. In other words, we cannot really be different from the society that makes us. The world has; built in it, a robust system that when one conforms to, blinds them from knowing God’s will. Our sense of discernment is shut off in this system that the world has created for everything “self” but God. On the other hand, there is also this other realm, though invisible, it has its own culture and system. But for us to be truly influenced by this other realm, we must allow our minds to break from the world’s structures and alluring pleasures. And this can only be accomplished by the renewing of the mind; breaking free from the system that feeds our mind. The old mind must be renewed in the knowledge of God’s word. This Knowledge should be obtained consciously through the study of God’s word. We have the mind of Christ.
Prayer_Bead: Father in my heart, thank you for the grace through your word to renew my mind. Help me not to conform anymore to the world but in transformation of my mind, may I know your will and purposes.
