Washed Not Conformed
When the foundationally soiled values of human reasoning foul the hearts and minds of church-goers (and former church-goers who have supposedly been taught the Word of God), and it becomes evident in lifestyle choices that do not glorify God Almighty, it is high time for people to avail themselves so that their hearts and minds may be washed with the Word of God all over again (Eph.5:26). It was not actually a legalistic preacher who said, “Be not conformed to this world” but Apostle Paul in the Bible who shared it for those who would overcome and be victorious.
“So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.” (Rom.12:1-2, Msg)
