"Do not conform to the patterns 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."
Educator and best-selling author, Tony Wagner is a firm believer in "disruptive
innovation" that changes the way the world thinks and works. "Innovation occurs in every aspect of human endeavor," and "most people can become more creative and innovative...given the right environment and opportunities."
Paul was a first-century innovator who traveled throughout Asia Minor, telling people how they could be transformed by faith in Jesus Christ.
To the Christians in Rome, Paul wrote, "Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing they way you think" (Romans 12"2).
He urged them to give themselves fully to God. The world has changed dramatically since Paul's time. But the longings for love, forgiveness, and the power to change remain the same. Jesus the Great Innovator, offers all of these and invites us to experience a new and different life in Him.
I'm thankful for the ways You're changing me. Lord, help me to be open to You and to cooperate with Your work in me. Transform my life for You. Amen.
God takes us as we are, but never leaves us that way.
Take Delight In The Lord,
