“Let God transform you into a new person
by changing the way you think.” (Romans 12:2)
Or, as Propaganda so succinctly put it:
“Caterpillars who fall in love with their own cocoons…lose.”
I may have written about this verse for Weekend One Word before, because every time I read it, I’m struck by the word “let.”
Let God transform you.
That one little three-letter word speaks so clearly to the fact that God gives us free will, doesn’t it? He doesn’t force us to transform. He doesn’t transform us against our will, even when he knows it would be in our best interest. Instead, he gives us the free will to decide whether we will let him transform us or not.
It’s our decision. Will we persist in our stubborn, worldly ways, in our old, broken patterns of thinking and acting? Or will we let God transform us by changing the way we think?
It all begins with our yes, the turning over of our will into God’s hands.
Let’s not fall in love with our own cocoons – our same-old, comfortable way of doing life. Let’s let God break us free.
Peace for your weekend, friends.
