Rom. 12, 2

I.

We are influenced in our thinking and acting by external influences about us.  Good influences help toward the good life.  We need to set our choice on being our best.

II.

“Be not conformed to this world”–the spirit of the age.  It does not look up, is not thoughtful of good.  It is our for “a good time,” forgetting God and righteousness–cares not for the things that abide–lives for the day, not for eternity.  A bad school master.  “The way of the ungodly shall perish.”  It is downhill all the way.

III.

“Be transformed”–set your mind on the better things.  Turn from frivolity, learn to love the good things, those that make for peace.  Think about them, strive for them, pray to attain them.  Dare to be different that you may attain the best life has to offer.  So live as to grow in grace.  “Love the Lord with all thine heart.”

IV.

Thus you will prove for yourself that “Godliness is profitable to all things”–the life that now is and that which is to come.

Certainly we should not desire less, and who can ask for more?  “He that doeth the will of God abideth forever.”
