We live in a society that is not tuned into the things of God. The world we live in is in the control of Satan. It is really a “mindless society.” Romans 12:1-2 tells Christians that we are to be a people of “mind renewal.”
Paul speaks to Christians when he tells us that because of our faith we need to march to a different drum than the world. As I said earlier, the world marches to the beat of the deceiver. He is called the “god of this world, (2 Cor. 4:4) and “the prince of the power of the air (Eph. 2:2). It is reasonable that we, because of our faith, present our whole self to God. We need to be a holy people (I Pet. 1:15-16).
We must not let this mindless society dictate how Christians live. We must always be found “renewing our minds.” Most of the time when the Bible uses the word “heart” it means “mind.” It is in the mind where we make decisions, both for good or bad. It is in the minds where we decide that we are going to serve Jesus. So. Let’s be transformed, believing and knowing that if we follow God and seek to be conformed to the image of Jesus (Rom. 8:29). If we are, we will let our light shine for Jesus!
