Not Conformed But Transformed
Sure! Change is good, but change is not easy. In fact, the process of transformation can be downright difficult.
“And be not conformed to the world: but be transformed…” (Romans 12:2) And this passing from one form to another, like a caterpillar to a butterfly, is commanded as a trademark of the Christian life.
Not conformed, molded into the likeness of the world’s philosophies and systems. But transformed, a metamorphosis.
Let’s be open to the possibility of growth, change, and maturity in our lives!
