Romans 12:2 (NKJV)
2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
When we read in Rom 12:2 about being transformed by the Word of God, what does that mean. First, we are to experience a complete change in our lives. We are transformed like the caterpillar into the butterfly. You may have been what people say were were and you may have done what they say you’ve done but in Jesus Christ you are not what people say you are!
James 1:22-25 (NKJV)
22 But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror;
24 for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.
25 But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.
Find your identity in God’s Word. Look up each of the following scriptures and make them yours. See yourself as God sees you.
