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.
