Transformation isn’t for clones

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. Rom 12:12

Groups of humans, sometimes even the group called the church, create hierarchies, assign value, and establish ideals; then reward members of the group who meet performance standards. Because we want to do the right thing and to be accepted and respected, we each try to look like this generic ideal of a “Christian.” This is called conformity. Transformation is something much more unique and personal.

Lord, thank You for helping me discover and become my transformed self.
