Have you ever felt pressure to fit in, to conform, to go with the crowd? Romans 12:1-2 says ‘Do not conform to the pattern of this world’ or as another translation puts it, ‘don’t let the world around you squeeze you into its own mould’. How can we stay true to who God invites us to be?
The Romans passage goes on to say, we can let God shape us, and re-mould us, by renewing our minds. What we think about God, ourselves and our faith is just as important as how we feel about it. Let God work in your mind as well as your life.
