10-10-14 Be Not Conformed

renewed

Do not conform to this temporal place,

For it is not your Home, this waiting room.

Instead resist the world, you’re under grace,

And let your soul inhale love’s sweet perfume.

When Jesus is your Saviour He begins

To soon regenerate your earth-bound mind

Into a holy state so far from sin

That it removes the scales from eyes once blind.

And now your mind may prove God’s perfect will,

Acceptable and good in word and deed.

A worthy child that lives for Him until

Your Father calls you on, spotless and freed

Be not attuned to sensual desires;

Let Christ renew your mind with Spirit’s fire.

 ~~~~~

And be not conformed to this world:

but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind,

that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable,

and perfect, will of God.

Romans 12:2 KJV
