A Changing Church in an Unchanging World
Romans 12: 1-2 “…Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. “
The moment you enter into a relationship with Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, it demands change. Worship is not just a song, it is how we live our lives. Worship is how we live and behave to honour Jesus.
There is only one true and proper worship and that is to sacrifice your body physically, mentally and spiritually to Him. As our minds are renewed, it transforms our relationship with God and towards others. God brings about change as we seek to serve Him
Being transformed by the renewing of our minds is a process over time. We need to feed ourselves with the truth, not with the secular storm of words and the stuff going on in society that is being fed to us daily.
vv 6-8 We have different gifts, let us use them. If it is giving, then give generously; if leading, do it with diligence; if showing mercy, then do it cheerfully. If we seek to bring what we have, then God does the work and brings about change.
