So now we’ve made a decision to surrender completely to God. What does it mean in my daily life?
Years ago, Apple computer ran an advertising campaign built around the idea that it is okay to “Think Different.”
While the people at Apple and the world in general would be pleased to applaud for the “outside of the box” thinking of someone like Gandhi, what would they say about you if you decide to refuse to be molded by the culture and experience true spirituality according to Jesus?
Take a look at the scripture in the sidebar. 1 Corinthians 6: 9-11 reminds us that many of us have made a decision to surrender that puts us at odds with the old way of doing things.
Now we have been ” washed…sanctified.. and justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
Again, Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”
How does this relate to Romans 12? Verse two begins by encouraging us to “not be conformed to this world.” We need to “think different” and, more importantly, be different.
