“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life–your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life–and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.”
(Romans 12:1-2, The Message)
Can I just say, “Wow!” I’m not going to make a bunch of comments. I’ll just let you chew on all that’s in those verses. Ask yourself the tough questions, and be honest with your answers. That’s what I will be doing too.
May your week be blessed as you fix your attention on God.
