Rom. 12:2 Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will is.

There are far too many copycats in the church today. Far too many people bring into the church worldly behavior and customs. Some people hide what they do and seemingly get away with it, while others are exposed and brought to public shame. No one gets away with anything because the Lord knows and judges the soul according to their deeds. We need to wake up now before we are lulled to sleep spiritually and lose out on salvation. We cannot be like the world and like Christ at the same time. We must choose what we are going to be like, the world or Christ.

We need to humble ourselves before God and let Him transform the way we think about who we are and how we ought to behave and think. What is going on in the name of Christ today is not working very well. We are slipping farther and farther away from holy living. We are not loving each other like we should be. We need a blood transfusion and mind transformation that we might be who God created us to be in Christ Jesus.

When we are aligned with God, we will know what His will is and how we must live in order to be pleasing and acceptable to Him. I fear that there are a lot of people in the church today who do not please God at all. Many people go through the motions of salvation, but do not know Christ as their Savior and Lord. We desperately need to be a people after God's own heart and not like the world. Let the Lord make you anew into a person after His own heart, holy and acceptable to God.
