God’s Process of Renewal

Romans 12:1-2 tells us to “not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”  In Colossians 4 it contrasts the old life to the new life by it’s actions and character. We often are under the impression that God just cleans up our actions and changes them over time. But that is the outside stuff and God always works from the inside out. Before God can change your attitude or actions, He has to change your thinking. This can take some time and actually is part of God’s total process of sanctification.What God is doing in changing your mind is changing your thinking. Replacing the lies with the truth. Therefore, the greatest contribution we can make to God’s process of renewal is knowing God’s word. We need to begin to see this world from God’s perspective rather than our own. We need to realize is is God centered, not self centered. We must realize it exists for His glory and not our glory or pleasure. We need to begin to “think scripture” and when we do that is God at work in our lives renewing us beginning with our mind then our attitudes and finally the outside stuff.

Are you “thinking scripture?”
