It is a remarkable blessing to be a Woman of God today. We have the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. However, as daughters of the King, we are not called to be like all the other woman of the world.
We are called to be something more and to be role models. We are called to let our lights shine for Jesus. We need to be the difference, not giving into the world around us and what it expects us to be and what the world wants us to give into. As Christians, we are set apart. As women, we need to take a stand against what the world is telling us to be.
Romans 12:2 states that,
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
It is interesting to note that Paul says that we must be transformed by the renewing of our “minds.” The mind is the key to our Christian life. The reason why non-Christians do not respond to Christian truth is that they cannot discern spiritual truth (1 Corinthians 2:14).
As a woman of God, our thinking must be changed (transformed) from old, ungodly ways of thinking into new, godly ways of thinking. What we know in our minds to be true forms a conviction in our hearts of that truth, and that conviction in our hearts translates into action. Therefore, we must first renew our minds.
The only way to replace the error of the world’s way of thinking is to replace it with God’s truth, and the only infallible source of God’s truth is His revealed Word, the Bible. Transformation through renewed minds comes as believers expose themselves to God’s Word through the faithful exposition of it each week in church, personal Bible study, and group Bible study. A solid church that believes in preaching the Word, reading the Word, and singing the Word is invaluable in helping us renew our minds.
There are no shortcuts. There is no magical formula for renewing our minds. We must fill our minds with God’s Word. As Jesus prayed to the Father, “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is the truth” (John 17:17).
If you could change just one thing about your walk with God, what would it be? How can you begin to change it?
