Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Romans 12:2
The pattern of the world is to look at a funeral and think it is the end; to look at love and equate it with sex; to look at worship and consider it one hour on Sundays thus reducing it to a ritual, a routine, an outward observance. It was never God's intention that life, death, love, or worship be portrayed as they are today. Therefore it is not surprising that people, especially young people are disillusioned with love and worship in particular.
Paul tells us not to be conformed to the world's perspective but rather be transformed. Then he tells us how. We are transformed by the renewing of our minds. We renew our minds when we choose to see things the way God's sees them. God is truth and has the only true perspective.
Jesus tells us how to understand death, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die" (John 11:25); how to understand love: "This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins" (1 John 4:10) and how to understand worship, "...in view of God’s mercy…offer your bodies as a living sacrifice…this is your true and proper worship (Romans 12:1). Worship is our response to God in light of his mercy. Worship is never dull when we connect with the living God.
Let's renew our minds by choosing to believe God's perspective and not the world's.
