It doesn’t make any difference now whether we have been circumcised or not. What counts is whether we really have been changed into new and different people. Gal. 6:15

We can pull off acting different without being different.  Changed behavior could be conformity to the expectations of a Christian community in order to fit in.  The emphasis and the pace of the Holy Spirit in accomplishing real spiritual change in a life may not parallel our human expectations about how change is supposed to look.

Lord, help me to encourage transformation rather than conformity.
