Topic: Examine Yourself, And Make The Change
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God (Romans 12:2).
God wants us to keep making changes and improving our lives 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. They think the country, the politicians, the government, etc., need to change; they know all the changes that should be made everywhere else, except in themselves!
Read the instructive verse of our opening verse one more time: “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” This verse gives you the responsibility of the change that’s necessary. So, rather than think everyone, but you, is to be held responsible for the problems, or that change has to come from somebody else, be that man or woman who’ll champion such positive transformation.
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; and with the investment of my personality, I influence my world for Christ! 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. Halleluiah!
