Be Transformed

Be Transformed

Romans 12:2 tells us to be transformed by the renewing of our mind. The best way to renew your mind is by diligently studying the Word and hiding it in your heart. Other ways we can renew our mind are by praying throughout the day, thinking upon the Lord, and meditating upon a portion of scripture.

We can also learn to view interruptions with a transformed mind, seeing them as an intervention by God. Being slowed down by a passing train gives us a few moments to fellowship with the Lord. If we continue to turn our thoughts to the Lord during the day, we may find that an unexpected phone call turns into an opportunity to pray for and encourage someone. An obituary in the paper may become an occasion to comfort someone with a much needed hug.

By renewing our mind we find that our actions are also renewed. We will begin to do the things that Jesus did.

A transformed mind leads to a transformed life.
