Daily devotional: Conform to God's ways

Scripture
Do not conform any longer 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

Observation
So many of us who trust in Christ try to keep one hand in the spiritual and another holding on to the world, its values, and its ways of doing things. We are new creations--the old has gone, the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17)! So let us live that way and renew our thinking in Christ.

Application
Test my thinking and renew my mind through prayer, trust in Christ, and growing through God's Word.

Prayer
Lord, please help me keep my mind in a heavenly, eternal perspective. Please renew my mind and transform me. Help me not to succumb to the world's values, but instead make my values line up with Yours. I love you, Lord!
