Not of This World

Romans 12:2 NIV
"Do not conform 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."

I saw a post the other day from a friend that really touched my heart. She posted that although she was not perfect she had made a change since she had been saved. A change that was visible to others that showed she had changed her life. The way she talked and dressed were some examples she gave. It immediately made me think of Romans 12:2

After we commit our lives to Christ we are still living in the world but we are no longer of this world. We are to walk in a different standard. Does that mean we are better than others? No, absolutely not, but we are no longer of this world. That means that the way we speak, act, dress etc should be pleasing to God. Our biggest witness is through our actions. While we can speak of Christ all day long if our actions do not back that our witness is destroyed. 

We are not of this world. Do your actions reflect that? Does the way you dress reflect Christ? The way you treat others and care for others does it reflect Christ? We have to be mindful of this. If we are not doing these things our witness is destroyed.

This is written from the heart of Sarah Akins

  1. LOVE this devotion Sarah!!! I must be honest and say when Christians go through a divorce or loose a lot of weight (men or women) it is always shocking to me that their dress changes. I am old school.... GOD LIKES WHOLESOME and so do I!!!!
