READ Romans 12:1-2
It is essential that men do not conform to this world. There too many men being shaped by the culture instead of Christ and the fallout is painful. Renewing your mind will set the stage for a great display of the will of God in your life as a man. When a man is being renewed he and his family can experience God’s good, acceptable, and perfect will.
Renewal requires daily, ongoing evaluation of our belief system. Once you identify an error, the next step is to find its counterpart, the Truth. The Truth in God’s Word is the only thing that counters the specific lies we are being told. We must dig into the Word of God to find specific Bible Truths to prepare for the daily onslaught of error.
I’d like to share 4 practical ways with you that have helped me:
- Speak the Truth out loud. By speaking the truth verbally out loud feelings that can be misleading are neutralized.
- Personalize the Truth. “I am destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and I am taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:5)
- Pray the Truth. Find areas of life that you need to work on – find Scriptures that address this need and pray those verses believe in the power of God’s Word.
- Mediate on the Truth. Charles Stanley said that the last thing he thought about at night before going to sleep was the truth.” He would choose a verse and rehearse it over and over in his mind. Thinking through God’s Word helps us have the mind of Christ.
When we immerse ourselves in God’s Word we discover the Truth. When we discover Truth, He makes us free. He is at work! When He is at work things change. Most importantly, we change and become more like Him. Now that’s the kind of renewal I want, what about you?
Lord Jesus, help me be renewed. Set me free to be a Man of God. As I pursue You in the Word, may Your Truth become personal to me. I long to give myself to You as a holy man, an acceptable man. Me, my family, or my church will do well if I’m not conformed to the world. God renew me each day for Your glory, Amen!
