(Examine Yourself And Make Changes)
TO THE BIBLE: Romans 12:2 GNB
“Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind. Then you will be able to know the will of God—what is good and is pleasing to him and is perfect.”
As a Christian, you have the same life as Christ does. It’s so important for you to be conscious of this reality. God wants you to keep making changes and improving your life from glory to glory. He wants you better today, than you were yesterday. The primary way for this to happen is by renewing your mind with the Word. A mind that’s renewed is one that’s sanctified to think right—to think excellence. A mind that’s renewed with the Word is anointed to make the right decisions and choices in life.
Your way of thinking is your responsibility. One of the things you have to watch about yourself is to learn to stand outside yourself, observe your own self, and ask, “What changes do I need to make?” Too many people in the world never take the time to examine themselves, and think about the positive adjustments they could make; instead, they focus on other people and everything else. Read the instructive opening verse one more time: “Do not conform yourselves to the standards of this world, but let God transform you inwardly by a complete change of your mind. Then you will be able to know the will of God—what is good and is pleasing to him and is perfect.” This verse gives you the responsibility of the change that’s necessary.
So, rather than think that change ought to come from somebody else, be that boy or girl who’ll champion such positive change. Always be passionate about the advancement of the lives of others. Think, “What can I do to touch the lives of others in a positive way?” That’s the right way to think!
My mind is constantly renewed by the Word. By the Spirit of God, I identify areas of my life requiring changes, and I effect such changes through the application of God’s Word. Hallelujah!
