Today's Lectionary Text

Romans 12:2

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Today's Devotional

We are living in times whereby it seems to be the norm that so many are in a mode of follow the leader. If someone does something it seems that others are inclined on an automatic basis to follow lockstep. It appears at first glance that as so many follow what others may do or say those actions are accepted as what is the right way to do things and live.
This world that we are living in has chosen its own road. A crowded road filled with the many. But a road that will in fact lead to a dead end.

But as those who vision is not focused on this natural world we are to be more so in line with a different path to follow. As well we are called on to follow in a manner that is the antithesis to the majority.

As Christians ours is the charge to not to be conformed to the direction that the world is going. I recall a saying that my grandmother used to say; just because everybody is doing doesn’t make it right.

The road that we as Christians travel will be less traveled. It will be devoid of the multitude. It will be a road whose journey calls for us to depart from the old us, and be transformed into a new person daily. A new person daily testing and approving the will of God. Doing so that it will be pleasing in his sight.
