And be ye not conformed to the world: but ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God. Romans 12:2 (KJV)
Why wouldn’t the way we think (and speak) be a part of God’s will for us?
In our household there is a principle that is always being refreshed: to let the thoughts in our minds circle the globe of our heads before we speak .
We live, right now, in a (politically captured) world where speaking is king and thinking is its jester. It’s purely, solely, and overwhelmingly only used to entertain. It is not used to build up but to tear down. Our thinking. To reduce us to conformity.
But thank God that He gave His only begotten Son as the uppermost in example to nonconformity.
And inasmuch as Jesus spoke truth and life He was in prayer and solitude. There was a mental reverence He gave to the Father when He withdrew from the crowd. Giving holy thought to not being conformed (to this world).
We Christians can stay centered in God when nonconformity is our prayer. We prove God’s way of thinking to be our standard when we renew our minds. When we are given opportunities to speak (to encourage).
Foolishness or transformation occurs in our speaking when our thinking is either rounded in worldliness or grounded in the things and the knowledge of God in scripture.
So let’s go Christians, prove your thinking to be God-centered.
