Romans 12:2 ” Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”

Following along in this same vein of thinking is Ephesians 4:23, where Paul again admonishes us to, “make new the attitude of your mind.” When the Lord comes into our lives He changes a lot about us…but it’s us that have to change our thoughts and actions. That Spiritual renewal of our minds is our responsibility to work on (with the Lord’s help of course) by taking our old way of thinking, our attitudes, and moral inclinations and seeking out God’s best. But I know it’s hard when the world’s newest fads and fashions are always enticing. But we can’t allow ourselves to be influenced by the external and fleeting world view of things. We are rather to pursue a deep, ongoing inner change of our old character…a spiritual metamorphosis so to speak of our old self…into something much more beautiful.
