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. Romans 12:2
Today, I was reminded of a post I read almost a year ago. You can read it here:
Beejai wrote an article about the movie, ‘Transformers’, and how they could have been better prepared for war with different weapons and types of vehicles. He related how we, as Christians, aren’t as effective as we could be either. Instead of imitating the world, we should grab hold of the power from our heavenly home. It is time to transform ourselves to be better, more effective Christians.
From Beejai’s post:
React: I know, I know. It’s only a movie. There’s no need to get all worked up about a work of fiction. But part of the reason I get worked up is because we are autobots. Like them, we belong to another world, another kingdom. Like them we have a mission and a responsibility to save the people on this planet. Like my complaint of them, we aren’t nearly as effective as we could be. We are so busy imitating the things of this world that we neglect the power from our home in the heavens that we could be tapping into. It’s time to transform. God help me to transform.
Like Beejai’s prayer,
Lord, transform me to be an effective witness for You. Fill me with Your power, and the presence of Your Holy Spirit. I pray for Your help,protection, and wisdom. In Jesus’s Name, Amen.
