Romans 12:2King James Version (KJV)
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
- And be not conformed to this world:
2. But be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,
3. that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
I could go at this in a customary way. I hope not to. Because you see, every minister ministers to those God has appointed to them to minister to.
And so without further ado……..
We are manipulated from the outset. Life doth give us banners. Crusades. Whereas we go about believing that we are enacting self, in truth, we enact that “Character” which we were through circumstances early on in life manipulated to vesture self with.
God will refine this Character we have donned when the rest of this Scripture is fulfilled in our lives. In this way is the Will made perfect; IE we have the one transpiring where we are manipulated by events, circumstances in life which conspired to outfit us with a token “us” which all it amounts to is a Crusade, a Redemption Drama. IE another side of the Dualistic Coin of Fate. Settling, reduced to settling we are, rather than taking that to God and cashing it in for the better Value.
Without the Life of God behind it then we are dupes. Manipulated by the Innate Void as our drive source. Mundanity. Unglorified. Earthly. Do you foresee yourself as doing great things for God? Then take the next step. Venture forth in Faith. Recognize that what you portray is the “You” manufactured by those circumstances forged by the Innate Void in an attempt to procure an illusory Value which will never compare with the resurrecting Power to be forwarded (advanced payment) you by the “Event” which transpired at The Cross Of Calvary.
Reduced to cheap shots.
Our portrayals, expended in real time can be blessed, more productive. Proper and correct sower of the seed.
The Sob Sister…..
Look, yes it is likely that circumstances in our childhood, in our youth were callous, leaving an imprint upon our being. Yet however, please bear in mind that those circumstances procured from us as emissaries an “Enlistment” not of God’s willing but instead the Void within employing a countering duality attempting to fill our hands and our time. There is in the supreme gambling hall; God’s bid and Satan’s bid. Just a metaphor don’t go preaching at me, putting your boot down my metaphorical throat, please….
It is for this that we have Free Will, in the end, we will have chosen. In the end, God can wash, has washed His hands, better than Pontius Pilate.
Reason among yourselves, and reason within yourself (yes we are a multiplicity of overlapping fragments, opining one against the other, bartering, bidding, conspiring).
That “Perfect” will of God is arrived upon with the acknowledgment that the “Earthy doth compete against the Heavenly” and that in the process we have to wish, desire to see clearly that…..
Yes, we have a Character, fine, okay, which needs to undergo a process; “The renewing of your mind”
Through this beginning, it is that God can refine it. By faith being procured from our Psyche.
This is that journey I stepped out into many years back. And yes, listen, I still find excuses and don’t present that “Character” as under His Auspices. But repentance and fellowship put me back on track.
