Born Again But Not Transformed

And so, dear brothers and sisters,a I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. 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.

— Romans 12:1-2

Some people are born again but never allow the Word to transform their lives. When you get saved God changes the inside but you’re the one that must change the outside! If you suffer defeat, if there’s no difference between you and the people in the world, you must  be transformed! 

Romans 12:2 gives us insight about the Christian who’s not transformed by the Word. They still live in defeat. They suffer addiction. They fall prey to sickness. There’s seemingly no difference between them and someone without the Lord. The difference comes from how much you allow the Word of God to transform you. 

It’s not enough for you to read the Word, you must believe it enough to transform you—your MIND. Change the way you think. One of the greatest obstacles in person’s mind is the way they think. If you think defeat, defeat will come. If you think failure, failure will make its way to you! Until you let the Word change your mind, you’ll allow it to transform your heart! It’s then that you can combat every attack satan throws at you by your spoken word!
