Daily devotional: Transformation by God

Scripture
Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
Romans 12:2 NLT

Observation
We were created by God's power and for His glory (Romans 11:36), so we should worship Him by giving our bodies to Him (Romans 12:1). The way we can be a living and holy sacrifice is to stop doing things the world's way and instead let God transform us into new people by changing the way we think. Everyone seeks to know God's will--and this is how we learn to know it!

Application
Continue on in asking God to transform me and change the way I think. Be the living and holy sacrifice He has called me to be.

Prayer
Lord, thank you for not only giving us salvation and freedom from our sins but also being the means by which we can even have the power to change into who You have called us to be. I love you and trust You and ask that You would please continue this work in me! Thank you, my Lord and my Savior!
