“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God” (Romans 12:2 NKJV). This is one of Paul’s admonitions. An admonition simply tells us that there is something for us to do. Here it is “renewing your mind.” Here he also tells us what we need to do. We used to have a mind entirely conformed to the world’s thinking. But that mindset has to be renewed to how God thinks. That means we have to learn about God. And come to knowledge of what His will is for the believer. His will is His word. That means feeding on the Word of God. Furthermore, we have to rightly divide the Word. We need to filter the Word through the finished work of Jesus—the New Covenant of Grace.
