Commentary from Pastor Mike White:

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

– Rom 12:2

When Scripture tells us to be transformed, God does not simply imply a slight tweak to our behavior. His desire for us is complete and total metamorphosis: absolute & perfect change from the inside out. When we give our lives to Christ, we are new creations. Everything about us is changed because our hearts are restored to perfect working order.

When Scripture describes that God can renew our mind, God is not just talking about a spring cleaning, or a new coat of paint. To “renew” is the Greek anakainosis (Strong’s #342), which is a gut renovation: a total makeover!

Let’s not settle for baby steps. God wants so much more for you. He invites you to be transformed. He invites you to receive a total renovation in your thought life. Don’t settle until you have received His best for you! In one instant, God can accomplish more in you than you ever thought was possible.

Prayer:

Father, I’m ready for a total makeover. Renew my mind so I can think like Christ. Transform my life so people can see Jesus in me. Thank You for immediate, immaculate change!
