DO NOT CONFORM
By Pastor Wilberforce Bezudde
“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)
Do not be conformed to the same pattern of this world. When we get born-again, we get a new identity, and we become brand new people. We take on the nature of Christ and His standard. Scripture says, in John 4:17; “as He is, so are we in this world.”
Do not compromise your nature and identity with the standards of this world. We stop thinking according to the flesh, and start thinking according to the Spirit. We start to walk in the Spirit, and not in the flesh. We are in this world, but not of this world. We come from above, that is why we should have a higher perspective.
Our mind has to be aligned with the work of God in our spirit man, that is when the transformation of the mind will take place. A person’s behaviour is a reflection of his or her thinking pattern. Our stand to reject the thinking and the customs of this world must be firmly planted in our mind. Let God transform us into a new people, by changing the way we think.
God has good, pleasing, and perfect plans for all of us. He wants us to have the best. He does not want us to be average, but to operate in full capacity. Do not settle for anything less, there is more for you. The will of God is the best for you. Do not take anything average, go for God’s best. Jesus is Lord!
I am a child of God. I have a new way of thinking. I am a brand-new person. As Jesus is, so am I in this world. I will not conform to this world. I will not compromise my new nature and identity with the desires of this world. I am completely different in Jesus Christ. Amen!
