Swim Up Stream

Romans 12:2 (NIV) 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.  source 

Pattern: a combination of qualities, acts, tendencies, etc., forming a consistent or characteristic arrangement

From this I hear: do not pattern yourself after the acts, tendencies, etc of the unsaved people of the culture.

I have fallen prey more times than I can even remember. Sometimes I apologize to DADDY GOD for our generations. I see people right here in my little corner, across the web and the country trying to emulate the rich and famous with fashion, toys, pastimes and ideology.

I am grateful for this Text today; it helps me. It gives me counsel and courage to swim up-stream and ask others to come along.

The verse goes on to say that if I do not allow the Word of GOD to renew mind, if I pattern my thoughts and actions after this culture the time will come when I will be unable to ascertain what the Will of GOD is — I believe this. I see this. Perhaps you do too.

Keep Pursing Him ΑΩ
