We’re coming to that big promise of change that we promised ourselves during the fantastic feasting we did over the last month. Oh, oh, the crunch is now!
What was that change we promised ourselves?
Did we promise to be kinder, more generous?
Did we swear off desserts and treats until we lost hose ten pounds?
Oh, oh, the crunch is on. Follow the advice in the next verses.
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.Romans 12:1-2, MSG
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.
Prayer- Lord, let this be the year that we change for the better and for your glory. Amen.
