3 Ways We Conform or Transform

3 Ways We Conform or Transform

If you live in a third world country on a middle class American income, you'll feel rich. 

But move into an upper class neighborhood in the States, and you'll feel poor. 

Our environment affects our perspective, our thinking and our values.

Watch enough TV and you'll begin to think that God's loving commands against premarital, extramarital and homosexual sex are outdated and irrelevant. 

Leaf through enough fashion magazines and you'll begin to redefine modesty. 

Hear enough profanities on the radio and you'll begin to sing along. 

Our values are influenced by: 

1. Our friendships--1 Corinthians 15:33

2. Our priorities--Galatians 6:7-8

3. The truths we dwell on-- Colossians 3:16; Matthew 4:4

And the Bible calls us to be transformers, not conformers: "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind" (Romans 12:2).

How about you--are you conforming or transforming?

  3. As I walk deeper into God's truths, I'm finally able to say that I am no longer conforming to the world. And I pray that God keeps me on the straight and narrow until it's time to go home.

  4. Yes, Gail, it's a process for sure. I have to regularly evaluate things in my life to keep from conforming to the world, but it's a wonderful thing to see progress, isn't it?

  6. I hate it when people around me tell me I shouldn't say who I am and especially as a Christian. So many ready to try to make me feel guilty for talking about Jesus , say that that's offensive and intolerant. Wow, talk about intolerance! Someone telling me how to introduce myself , what I can say about myself . Crazy

  7. Amen to that thanks for the reminder, because sometimes while trying to explain there truths to the people I love I feel as if I live in a world where I am as I have been called an old spenster but the reality is the truth is very old and it never changes even if our morals and values change we should remember God never changes and he will never forsake us that's true love
