don’t conform: #LiveSticky in this shiny place

Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to attest and prove what God’s will is – His good, pleasing, and perfect will.

Romans 12:2, NIV

As a Christ follower, you are called to live differently in The Land of Shiny Things (L.O.S.T.) and not let your outward expression hide the new life you’ve been given through Christ.

Translation: Keep it real. Let the Light of Jesus in you outshine and out influence the world rather than the other way around.

Your spheres of influence –  and those attempting to influence you – multiply online. The Apostle Paul’s plea becomes even more critical. When you go online picture yourself as a Holy sojourner passing through the desert.

Picture Christ Himself walking in front of you.

Paul chose his words carefully as he sat down to pen this letter to the church in Rome.  he said,  “be transformed by.”

This implies a process, a partnership, and that someone else – in this case the Holy Spirit – will be a the center of your transformation. You can only renew your mind to the degree you allow the Holy Spirit to possess it. What you post, tweet or share with the world can influence hundreds, if not millions, of other people with the the click of a button.

Never conform. Stand out. Choose to reflect the things of God.

Tweet, post or share this truth today…

Let’s stand out, stand up, and press into the things of God today. #LiveSticky

How you will stand for Him today?

    You’ve always been such a light onlline Julie. Isn’t it wonderful that God can connect His kids via a prayer and a click! Thanks for dropping by today.

    I was prompted to read Psalm 139 when you posted it. “Search me oh God and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is ANY offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” WOW!!!! What an awesome prayer for living online.

    I’m completely fired up by the conversations here today and others I see happening online. God is linking our hearts and connecting them to His agenda.

    Today was one my favorite kind of days – full of strategy and planning on how to use technology and social media to equip people, in every corner of this great big earth, to live, lead, and love like Jesus. There’s a holy rumble happening around the world – a crescendo of clicks are busting through the darkness. Vision is being cast and the Holy Spirit is bringing revelation to the hearts of all those open to receive it.

    I couldn’t imagine missing out on all that God is doing in such a time as this.
    I am all in – standing up and out – waving my arms ((/)) – manning my post – online and IRL – ready to GO.
