Willingness To ChangeIn Romans 12:2, the bible tells us not to be conformed to to the pattern of this world. What does that mean? What is ist about the world that we must not conform to… its culture? Is it the way the world eats, drinks, dresses, thinks, entertains, fights, loves, hates, votes, sleeps, spends, invests, dances, sings, has sex, uses drugs, etc.,etc.,etc.? Well Yes, but it goes deeper than that.
2 Corinthians 5:16-17 says we Christians are not to take a worldly view of things because we are new creations! The old has gone and the new has come. Where did the old go? And what's new? Let's take a look and see what it is not:

  • It's not a new bank account - you'll still owe!
  • It's not a new waistline - you'll still be too thick or thin!
  • It's not a new hairline - you'll still be bald or balding!
  • It's not a new time line - you'll still be aging or old!
  • It's not a new clothesline - well, we will be clothed with Christ. But that's invisible!
  • It could be a new punchline - where you are the butt of the joke!
