Changing the way you think

Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. - Romans 12 v 2 (NLT)

Change is hard, some people would even say it is nigh on impossible. We want to be different, we try to be different but a combination of our sinful nature and our life experiences have programmed us to think a certain way. And that way of thinking can be damaging to us and others.

Jesus breaks the power of Sin in our lives at salvation and starts the healing process of our broken lives. To often then we concentrate on the wrong thing. We focus on our efforts of behaviour modification. That's like trying to get apples from a pear tree. Impossible! Sin is first a HEART problem not a behaviour problem.

Here Paul gives us the key to change, to transformation, the key to being a new person. LET God change your heart, the way you think and your behaviour will change.

So I determine to spend more time LETTING God touch my heart.
