Be Transformed Not Conformed!

Do not be conformed to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God.-----Romans 12:2

The Apostle Paul is urging us to NOT follow or copy the behavior and ways of this world, but to let God, by the work of His Holy Spirit, TRANSFORM (make) us into a NEW person by the RENEWING or CHANGING of our minds.  In other words, CHANGING the way we think and live.

Allowing the Holy Spirit's influence in our HEARTS and MINDS, instead of the influence of this SINFUL and CORRUPT world, will give us the knowledge and discernment of what is the GOOD, PLEASING, and PERFECT will of God for our lives.

But before you can be a NEW person with a NEW mind and heart, you must FIRST follow these SIMPLE steps:  CONFESS your sins to God and ask for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVE in your HEART that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE today, making intercession for you before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION.  Do it NOW, while you STILL can.  He's waiting!!!
