“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:2)

Hi everyone. Since the year started, I’ve been meditating on this verse and putting it into practice, and I’m amazed at the results! 😉

So today I’d like to share with you a message Bishop Macedo wrote. It’s straightforward, practical, and very helpful. Let’s read, shall we?

We cannot be conformed to this world, which means that we cannot adapt ourselves to the manner of this world. On the contrary, once the Lord Jesus rescues us, our minds need to be fully renewed so that we can be transformed, born again, and experience the will of God, which is good and acceptable and perfect.

New ideas, new beliefs, new principles, new values, new goals, new interests, new priorities, new understanding… everything becomes new to those who are unhappy with this world and have the desire to experience God’s will.

The renewing of our mind is about the need to renew our spirit, which shows where transformation actually takes place. A mind that is conformed to the world becomes old. It’s lazy, inept, goes with the flow, and never experiences the good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Don’t adapt yourself to the manner of this world; keep your spirit in step with the Word of God.

 

Until next week.

    Good afternoon.
    Thank you for this message.
    What I got it from this is that for me to renew my mind, I have to break free from certain habits and differentiate myself from youths of the world. For my mind to change I really have to fight against my natural habits that I have. Change keeps consist when we are consistent with the small things.
    As for me, I have never had structure or discipline. I just went with the flow and hoped for the best. Which never worked out for me.
    Thank you for this message,

    Thanks Mrs. Nanda, this is true, because if we are not renewing ourselves with the things of God, we become vulnerable of letting other thing get inside of us the will impede God from working in us

    Através dessa mensagem no blog da d.Nanda Bezerra, me levou sobre alguns acontecimentos do dia a dia, e muitas das vezes acabamos nos confirmando com os acontecimentos no mundo, na nossa vida, no nosso cotidiano, e achar que é normal, mais nos que somos nascidos de Deus não podemos nos confirma com as coisas desse mundo,

    Não devemos andar segundo o mundo pois somos separados para Deus quando entendi isso minha mente e as minha atitudes mudaram e minha vida também.

    Yes Mrs Gouvea. We need to make the difference in this world which is through renewal of mind, spirit etc not with going with the flow and continuing with old habits.

    A brief but detailed message. This is where we can get things so wrong, when we think we can follow Jesus and still have the same thoughts or way of thinking, It just doesn’t work and causes frustration. I know that if I desire to follow Him all my actions must follow accordingly, if He isn’t of this world then how can I be?!
    Great message, something to think about.

    obrigado D. Nanda por esta mensagem não temos que agir com as normas desse mundo porque eles só ensinam que o errado e certo nos que somos de Deus temos que fazer a diferença.

    E verdade …
    E tudo que eu quero que aconteça na minha vida…
    quero viver em novidade de vida…com a renovação da minha mente.
    Para que a vontade de Deu seja feita na minha vida.

    Yes Mrs Nanda it’s true. We should not live according to the patterns of this world. Let our minds be renewed for our Spirit to be renewed as well. 😀

    What stood out to me was that EVERYTHING is new when my mind is transformed, from the way I think, down to my goals and plans. It’s a complete switch.

    Dear Miss Nanda

    An interesting and encouraging read!

    I pray everyday for renewal of the mind as I realise that my life today is a result of what i though about years go, Consequently, my life five yeas from now will be the sum total of what I am thinking today!

    I pray God will help me with his process.

    Thank you

    Thanks for this post. Since the year started I am working hard to renew my mind in order to develop in my spiritual life.

    This message was very similar to what Bo Frank preached yesterday. Sometimes because of decisions the government makes, the society makes it’s as if we are forced to change our belief’s from the law of God. But if our mind is renewed daily our decision and faith will be based on the word of God.

    Boa noite Dna Sandra Gouvêa! É verdade, que possamos sempre renovar a nossa mente somente com as coisas de Deus, é quando o agradamos de fato e de verdade!! Viver em novidade de vida é o alicerce para a força a qual buscamos apenas no SENHOR!!
    Mesmo que para o mundo venhamos a ser caretas, em adorar a um único Deus, que possamos ser como Jó.. onde Deus viu que em toda a terra não há … ele: ser humano íntegro e justo, que ama e teme a Deus e se desvia do mal! ..
    Transformar o nosso interior através da palavra do Senhor!! Na fé e na certeza que grandes coisas estão por vir!!

    Olá D.Nanda é isso ai Deus nús escolheu, e estamos andando reto com Deus afastada desse mundo de perdição, se desviando do mal.

    realmente não dá para se acostumar com o mundo e tudo que há nele, pois no momento em que nascemos de novo deixamos tudo para trás para servir e viver unicamente para Deus! o renovo com ele é fundamental pois assim o Espirito Santo se fortalece mais e mais nas nossas vidas !
