Romans 12:2 by Florence D’Costa

Romans 12:2  Do not copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.  Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.

What does Paul mean.  He means exactly what he has written – He very specifically tells us not to copy the behaviour and customs of this world.  At the moment in Australia a small group is clambering to redefine marriage and in Victoria the Government is trying to bring in a culture of death – they are wanting to bring in Euthanasia.  Now this is the way some parts of the world are thinking. But Paul says, ‘let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. ‘  So, we are called to look to God and not to the world, He will teach us his ways and make us a new person who will not be part of the world but a people who will belong to God.  When we belong to God, we will know God’s Will for us which will be good, pleasing and perfect – to God ofcourse.

The ways of the world is definitely not God’s ways and hence it should definitely not be our ways as well.  My experience is when we look to Christ and follow God’s Holy Will, we will be transformed and made new and when people see us, they will surely know that we belong to Christ.
