A Living Sacrifice
“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 (NIV)
I claimed Romans 12:2 as my life verse shortly after I met Jesus at age 15. I felt like a person who didn’t — who couldn’t — conform. As I’ve journeyed through life, I’ve learned to test and approve what that pattern is (for me). In my faith, I call that testing listening to God’s will. The approving is God asking my consent. The Good, the pleasing, the perfect will is the understanding that His will is truly only what’s best.
NOTE: These are my beliefs. I have no desire to change anyone’s beliefs. Truly, I am not an evangelist. I am a student, first, and a teacher and storyteller second.
I invite you to share your stories, and I will share them, but only with you permission. This will be via podcast. I need to learn how first, though.Blessings,
