Beloveth, how are doing today? WoW! this our God too much, Only Him I will Praise, only Him I will worship and serve Him forever in Jesus Name! Amen And Amen!!!! Alleluia to His Holy Name!

Today we looking at one of my favorite scriptures in the Bible and I am so excited because I know that the Lord will renew His Word in our hearts and we all will be blessed at the end in Jesus Name!

Let us open the chapter, will the teaching is going on. if you ask my opinion about it, I will name it your “Daily work manual.” It is so enriching and so rewarding too if follows to the later. I don’t know the version of the Bible you are using, but if you have (NLT) please read verse 1 and 2 of Romans chapter 12 (but endeavour to read through).

“……plead with you to give your body as a living and holy sacrifice – the kind that will be acceptable.” This is the way to worship Him. verse 2 says “ Don’t copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”

Beloved, it is God that changes an individual, and does that through the changing of the way you think. Praise the Lord!

Do you want to please God? Then don’t struggle with the Holy Spirit, yield yourself to Him and leave the rest to Him. Open your Bible to Jonah 2:9, when God made the fish to swallowed Jonah, than it was done him that he cannot flee from God. Jonah repented in belle of the fish, and immediately God commanded the fish to spit him out, that was after Jonah confessed truly “Salvation comes from God alone.” Praise the Lord!

Interesting the Jonah was preserved in the fish belly, He did not contact any infection as a result neither did the fish digestive organ digested him, until God gave a Word that delivered him from the belly of the fish.

I don’t know thw assignment you are running away from but I know that God is able to delivery you even in that situation that seemingly impossible to man, for with God nothing is impossible Praise the Lord!

Back to our theme text today, god is saying to us “do not copy the behaviour and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.

Just like Jonah we are using as a reference. At first Jonah thought God will repent of his Word to destroy Nineveh so instead of doing the “Will” of God Jonah decided to save himself the embracement that will come when God refract from His intention towards Nineveh after he must have preached to them and they repented of all their sin.

God need to do some work in His dear prophet for him to understand the mind of God, after He changed the way Jonah was thinking while he was in the belly’s fish, Jonah proclaimed that “salvation belongs t God (both his salvation and that of the people of Nineveh) is God that will cause each part to repent.

So Jonah got that understanding after God changed his thought pattern, then God caused the fish to spit him out, (meaning that God made Jonah undesirable to the fish). Moreover, you spit out only hat is not desirable to you.

Beloveth, fear God!

Beloveth today’s teaching is telling us not conform to the world standards, (its customs and behavior). What are those ways by its standards you are conforming to the world? You have to repent of it, Ask the Holy Spirit to help you and when you are change beloveth hold on to that salvation because it is costly – it cost God the Blood of his only Begotten Son of the Father.

Join us to discover more below:

“And be not conformed to this world.” Romans 12:2

If a Christian can by possibility be saved while he conforms to this world, at any rate it must be so as by fire. Such a bare salvation is almost as much to be dreaded as desired. Reader, would you wish to leave this world in the darkness of a desponding death bed, and enter heaven as a shipwrecked mariner climbs the rocks of his native country? then be worldly; be mixed up with Mammonites, and refuse to go without the camp bearing Christ’s reproach.

But would you have a heaven below as well as a heaven above? Would you comprehend with all saints what are the heights and depths, and know the love of Christ which passeth knowledge? Would you receive an abundant entrance into the joy of your Lord? Then come ye out from among them, and be ye separate, and touch not the unclean thing.

Would you attain the full assurance of faith? you cannot gain it while you commune with sinners. Would you flame with vehement love? your love will be damped by the drenchings of godless society. You cannot become a great Christian—you may be a babe in grace, but you never can be a perfect man in Christ Jesus while you yield yourself to the worldly maxims and modes of business of men of the world.

It is ill for an heir of heaven to be a great friend with the heirs of hell. It has a bad look when a courtier is too intimate with his king’s enemies. Even small inconsistencies are dangerous. Little thorns make great blisters, little moths destroy fine garments, and little frivolities and little rogueries will rob religion of a thousand joys.

O professor, too little separated from sinners, you know not what you lose by your conformity to the world. It cuts the tendons of your strength, and makes you creep where you ought to run. Then, for your own comfort’s sake, and for the sake of your growth in grace, if you be a Christian, be a Christian, and be a marked and distinct one.

Beloveth, read the first paragraph of this piece again- “If a Christian can by possibility be saved while he conforms to this world, at any rate it must be so as by fire. Such a bare salvation is almost as much to be dreaded as desired.

The Lord has given His Word and His commitment to save you through the Blood of Jesus, don’t let it slip your finger, else you get repented the “hard way” like our brother Jonah did. Accept Jesus right way and be save by clicking here . Return to your Father and He will grant you the desires of heart through changing you.

Another person that enjoyed God’s change is Jacob (Gen 32:26-29). What about Brother Paul, God changed him from the Saul to Paul . God stripped off all the personality of Saul – the murder, the persecutor, and changed him the Paul – the carrier of Goodnews (Acts 9:1-31,26:29, Eph 6:19-20).

Beloveth we all like Jonah, needs our thinking to be transformed, like Jacob we need a change of name, and like Paul – to be carrier of Goodnews, God’s Ambassador ever ready to preach the Word of God, Praise the Name of the Lord! Alleluia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Beloveth, let us by the way of conclusion read 1 Cor 3:16 -19. (for we know that there is no end to the revelation of God in His Word)

Don’t be wise by the world standards for the world’s wisdom is foolishness to God.

Once again don’t conform to the world but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think…, which after you will know the Will of God and you will be good, pleasing and perfect. May God help us all in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in the Lord.
