The Word of God points out in Romans 12:2 (AMP), “Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].” God’s way of thinking and the world’s way of thinking are totally opposite.
The things of God appear foolish to the world and vice versa. Case and point, the Word of God tells us to walk by faith and not by sight and the world tells us to believe only when we receive. If we are looking to live a life of purpose, it is critical that we renew our minds, and change our way of thinking and line up with the Word of God. We are to take on the mind of Christ. When we do this, we begin to prove the good, acceptable and perfect will of God for our lives. Finally, renewing our mind is not an event but it is a process which requires daily practice.
