Romans 12:2 (New King James Version) “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
This world is temporary, you are not. If you are shaped by the world, you will die like the world. If you are shaped by the Lord, you will live forever like the Lord.
You are too precious to be shaped by a world which will spit you out at moments notice. Why subject yourself to the cruel intentions of the world’s molding? The Master Potter has better intentions for your current life and life eternal. Sometimes it may not be comfortable to be formed in the image of Christ. The best image imaginable is not the world’s image, but the image of the Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.
