“Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
Romans 12:2 (KVJV)
These words, written by Paul, speak of a way to alter our outlooks. I like the way he used the words he chose.
Transformed: gives a meaning of a radical change. We need to see our world positively transformed for Christ.
“renewing:” making something better, refurbishing, improving.
We make our minds into the states we want to be. Some people believe what they hear when they hear disparaging remarks about others. Others think it humorous to talk about perverted subjects. However, God is not glorified in these types of discussion.
God is only glorified when we radically change for Him. In our 21st Century, we truly need a radically changed world. A prayer group I participate in is praying for revival for our world. We realize that revival begins in our hearts. It begins with confession of our sins.
Confession, based on humility, creates the basis of transformation and renewal of our minds.
