The Transformed Difference

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. Romans 12:2

Society is pretty good at churning out cookie-cutter characters. If you follow the pattern, you’ll want what others have, wear clothing approved by society’s elite, and be discontent when nothing you want satisfies.

Society says only some people are special and if you want to be special you need to do what those people do. This may explain why there are so many websites and television shows dedicated to telling you who’s in today and why you need to change everything about you to be like them.

God wants you to stop looking, acting, and sounding like society’s special people, but it will mean changing your perspective. God wants to change that old way of dealing with life and transform everything about you into someone who agrees to pursue God’s good, acceptable, and perfect will. You see, God has always had a plan for your life, but when you take your eyes off Him and pursue the approval of others who seem to have more of something you like, you lose connection with the God who understands your personal life map.

Keeping up with the Joneses could keep you from following the life plan God created just for you.
