Be Transformed

By Mack | March 5, 2008

Everybody is using this word these days.  Transformation. We use it where I work. My church has a new campaign called "transformed". Christians should understand this word.  Have you been transformed?

Paul says in Romans12:1-2 , to be transformed!

1Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship. 2 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.

Don’t conform any longer to this world.  That is radical change you know. That is change that counts! That is why I chose the domain name for my other web site – changecounts.com. Your Change Counts! Is there evidence in your life of that change? If so, great.  Keep up the good work. If not, why not change today? Get some guts! It takes guts to not be conformed to this world.

One practical change most of us can make today is to control our tongues. Do you get caught up in the office gossip?  Do you find yourself joining in, when someone is talking about someone else? Just stop that. Be different.  Defend those that are not present.  It makes it hard to talk bad about someone, while you are defending them to others.

I have 12 core values that I try to live my life by.  I fail on each one many times, so if you plan on judging me by these, don’t bother. I know I fail at these, but here they are. Notice, defend those who are absent is in there.

  • Succeed at home first
  • Never compromise with honesty
  • Hear both sides before judging
  • Obtain the counsel of others
  • Defend those who are absent
  • Develop one new proficiency each year
  • Plan for tomorrow’s work
  • Maintain a positive attitude
  • Keep a sense of humor
  • Be orderly in person and at work
  • Listen twice as much as you talk
  • Concentrate on the people and tasks at hand, not on the next job or promotion
