Test and Approve

in Christian Living/Situational Service/Servanthood

I'm Ron Moore with the Bible Minute.

Finding God's direction is not passively waiting around to see writing in the sky. In today's passage, Paul gives us one thing to do, and one thing not to do in Romans 12:2. Here's what he wrote:

"Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will."

When we stop the process of conforming and start the process of transforming, we will begin to look more like Jesus, and less like our culture. Then we will be in a spiritual position to "test and approve what God's will" is for us.
