Be transformed...

Romans 12:1 & 2..." I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.(2) And be not conformed tothis world: but be ye transformed by the renewng of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."

In my reading this morning, I came across this familiar passage. Many times we get stuck in the rut of "me first" thinking. But, when we think God first, we open ourselves to an inner trasformation.

This is not just an idea to think about, and get back to Him about, but is rather our "reasonable service". If you think about it, it's the least we can do!

We are also compelled to be separate from the world, that we may prove the will of God. If we are doing the same as everyone else, where is our witness? Also, if we are a part of the world's ideals, how would we discern the will of God anyway?

Think on these things today...may your life be a shining light of God's will to others around you!!!
