In last Sunday’s message, Marty and I talked about how we can be transformed.
Not just how to change what we do (which results in temporary change), but how to change what we want to do (which results in permanent change).
I hope you have joined us this week in applying the 5 principles from Romans 12 for transformation.
What we didn’t tell you on Sunday is there is one change that will change everything for you.
It’s found in Romans 12:2
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.”
Let’s break down what the verse says.
We can be transformed.
How? By renewing our minds.
And what is the purpose for renewing our minds? To be transformed? Yes, but also to prove that the will of God is good, acceptable and perfect.
You see, proving the will of God to be good, acceptable and perfect is exactly the same has being transformed.
Why is this? Because the degree to which you believe God’s will is good, acceptable and perfect is the degree to which you will be transformed.
Every time you have ever sinned is because at the moment you sinned, you believed that what you wanted was better or more desirable than God’s will.
So how do you prove to yourself that God’s will is good and acceptable and perfect?
I’m glad you asked.
1. Refocus your mind
2. Humbly evaluate yourself
3. Get group support
4. Fill your life with love
5. Nurture your enthusiasm
My prayer is that you’ll join us on this breathtaking, heart stopping, eXtreme adventure of transformation.
And of course you can’t do by yourself.
So if you haven’t already, join a small group here.
