…Or Don’t like the way you think? Change it through God.
Romans 12:2 Do not model your behaviour on the contemporary world, but let the renewing of you minds transform you, so that you may discern for yourselves what is the will of God–what is good and acceptable and mature.
With all that is going on in the world today, all the hate, venom spitting, image bombardment, warfare against free speech, it a wonder we haven’t all become jaded, and started buying into all the hype. Each of us has gone through the fire to come out cleansed in the blood of the Lamb. Each of us has scars that would have otherwise made us into hate spewing, close-minded individuals, but we strive daily to rise above it all through the grace of God. With our minds renewed through the grace and love of God, we can see past all the rhetoric, and conclusion jumping.
Looking at the world through God’s love and grace doesn’t mean to look at the world through rose colored glasses. God does not want us to be naive.
…so that you may discern for yourselves what is the will of God–what is good and acceptable and mature.
God wishes us to rise above the hatred, bigotry, and know that His will helps us see that the world can be a much better place if we would look at life as He would. By being mature, we see the world from all angles. We see the hatred, and bigotry and choose not to take part in it. Instead, we lead by example and show the world understanding, compassion, and acceptance.
Until next time, God Bless.
