Molded

“Do not allow this world to mold you in its own image. Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind. As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete.” Romans 12:2 The Voice

This world will mold us.  Sometimes it happens suddenly and dramatically and painfully.  Sometimes it’s like water washing over a stone, it happens very gradually without us even knowing.

God can mold us too if we let Him.  It’s a matter of choosing what we want to wash over us.  Sometimes it can be suddenly and dramatic (like Paul; Acts 9:1-9). Or it can be gradual, like the churches under Paul’s tutelage (Galatians, Ephesians, and Philippians).

We just have to choose who we want to be molded into.

Isaiah 40:29, Proverbs 11:30, Romans 12:4-21
