And do not be conformed to this world [any longer with its superficial values and customs], but be transformed and progressively changed [as you mature spiritually] by the renewing of your mind [focusing on godly values and ethical attitudes], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His plan and purpose for you]. – Romans 12:2 

We are urged to not copy the patterns of the world we live in. A true Christian should not follow the fleeting fashions and ways of doing things of the present time. Each age has its own superficial values and customs and the better the economy, the more fleeting things are in every society.

No human society has a truly good pattern to follow. No matter where we live, we need to do our best to be progressively transformed, by renewing our minds with the truth of God’s Word. Our mental faculties, reasoning and understanding are shaped by the values we follow and of what surrounds us daily. In the years we lived a worldly life, our brain was programmed to think according to worldly values. Now, as Christians we have to erase our old mentality and replace it with God’s perfect one, according to His eternal ways and values.

The more we study the Bible asking the Holy Spirit to reveal its truth to us and then meditate on it, we start to replace our old thinking patterns, with the right ways. Each of us know what needs to change first. If we focus long enough on the Bible verses that show God’s truth on the matter, it becomes ours and our mentality changes. Then, we can start to work on another wrong thinking pattern. It takes time and effort to renew our minds, but the result is well worth it. We live on this planet to get to know God’s perfect will, be able to follow it and fulfill His plan and purpose for our lives and help as many as possible to live for Jesus.


Heavenly Father, thank You so much for making a way for me to replace my old mindset with Your true, valid one. The better I understand Your will and the more Your Word becomes alive in my heart, the more blessed I am. I love Your value system! Please help me understand it and be able to replace my old ways of thinking and doing things with the one shown in Your Word. Please help me to understand Your will and fulfill it. Thank You that Your will is good, acceptable and perfect in Your plan and purpose for my life. In the Name of Jesus I pray. Amen
