2 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. Romans 12:2
Our minds are renewed by the truth of God’s word, through the power of the Holy Spirit. We are called to study God’s word on a daily basis. The world and its system are under the bondage and deception of Satan. Those who conform to the world are not following Jesus Christ, nor apart of God and His kingdom.
Following Jesus Christ requires that our whole lives be committed to Jesus Christ. There are some who truly believe they can have one foot in the world and one foot in God’s kingdom. But when Jesus calls anyone to follow Him, He calls them to lay down their lives and die to this world and its desires.
The Christian journey is one of continually transformation. We are transformed on a daily basis. Those the Father loves, He prunes. Our hearts desire should be to decrease that the Lord would increase. Daily we should be dying to the flesh and our sinful desires and embracing and following the Holy Spirit more and more. If we are abiding in Him on a daily basis, He will become our only desire.
