Jesus said “My Kingdom is not of this world” John 18:36

How many times have we heard Christians say ” I am in this world, but not of it!”. How many times have you yourself said this?

How many of us truly live a life that does not conform or look like the world? Sadly their are many Christians out here whose lives look similar to the secular community. They claim they are Christians yet, you really cant tell by looking at their lifestyle and behavior.

Our “me” mentality gets us trapped in habits, relationships and lifestyles that truly hurt us in the end. When we make life all about us, we don’t make room for God. When we leave no room for God, we become aligned to the world.

Psalm 51:1-12 gives hope to the hopeless….”wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions and my sin is always before me…

When we lay down our lives daily and surrender our selves completely…daily we become new creatures. Renewing our mind daily, reminds us that we God’s completely We have to stay connected to the reality of God’s love and mercy towards us and in response surrender it all to Him. God id bigger than any problem we will ever face!

Today’s Dare: Reflect on the thought of giving your life completely over to God as a surrender and a sacrifice. Examine your lifestyle choices. Do you eat healthy? Do you exercise? Do you take the necessary medical precautions? Make the necessary sacrifices to completely give your whole self to God…mind, body and soul

Prayer: Lord you made me. Teach me to live as one who is no longer about self but about the God who made me for your purpose. Only then can I become my best self. Conform me to the image of your Son and your plan for my life. I want to be a sacrifice for you!

Be blessed and be ye not conformed today!
