Transforming our minds

The motivation for our holiness is God's incredible mercy and grace. We offer ourselves to Him because He has already shown us his love through the sacrifice of Jesus. As we offer ourselves to honor Him, we are worshipping Him. As we refuse to be molded into the lifestyle of the world, we offer Him praise. As we consistently do these things with our lives, God's will becomes even clearer. With the Spirit's help, we are daily being transformed to be more like Jesus as we display more of the character of God

Therefore, 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. 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.
— Romans 12:1-2

Dear Lord, as the old hymn says, "Have thine own way Lord ... mold me and make me after thy will!" I gladly offer you my heart, my life, and my future to be used to your glory. In Jesus' name. Amen.
