Wesley's Notes for Romans 12:2

12:2 And be not conformed - Neither in judgment, spirit, nor behaviour. To this world - Which, neglecting the will of God, entirely follows its own. That ye may prove - Know by sure trial; which is easily done by him who has thus presented himself to God. What is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God - The will of God is here to be understood of all the preceptive part of Christianity, which is in itself so excellently good, so acceptable to God, and so perfective of our natures.


People's Bible Notes for Romans 12:2

Ro 12:2 And be not conformed to this world. The spirit of the world is opposed to that of Christ. Satan is "the Prince of this world (Joh 12:31 14:30 16:11). Christ died "to deliver us from this present wicked world" (Ga 1:4). Hence the service of Christ renders necessary a refusal to fashion ourselves after its ways. But be ye transformed. Instead of following the ways of the world, the Christian must be "transformed", changed into a new form of life by the renewing of your mind, by having a new spirit, and "walking after the Spirit" (Ro 8:1,4 Ga 5:16,25). That ye may prove. Demonstrate, show forth. The saint, transformed, renewed, will show forth in his life "the will of God".

To be non conformed is a tall task in this world. Standing for the Word of God at all costs regardless of affiliation, preachers and influence. God Bless


Lebo's comment on 2015-03-25 04:35:28:

Changing the way we think and be Jesus alike,guided by the spirit and not depending to our own understanding.


Paul Coxxon's comment on 2015-02-28 20:23:40:

This is were we Christian should understand our gift from God, walking in holiness not allowing the things we see influence us. Think maturely, understanding who we are as light of the world


Egbo Adanna Christy's comment on 2014-11-13 04:18:32:

When we accept JESUS CHRIST as our personal Lord and Saviour, He gives us the grace to destroy the old Adamic nature inherent in us and receive the NEWNESS OF MIND IN HIM.We become more like him.John 1 12

This is the first information that a Christian should know and he must learn to transform his mind before he becomes a grownup Christian.


Francis's comment on 2014-03-24 15:07:37:

This scripture is saying we should not do what we see people do but we should no what the word of God say so we can do what is right and perfect will of God Because human mind is renew by the word he listing to christ embassy church


MockingBird's comment on 2014-02-02 07:42:48:

Who and what I hang around with is what I will do and speak and be like. I once was in the world but Jesus called me out !!!! Now as Moses was taught of the ways of Egypt and God had to teach him of His ways and acts. God could not do unless Moses had a desire to know the Lord. I have a desire to know my Lord God so I will get myself in the Word of God and be taught of him and then I will be like Him and do like Him and be believing like him .Praise God I don't have to be who and what I was before. Glory to God !!!!


Lorie Hudson's comment on 2013-11-12 14:44:09:

very simply put; it is His Word that has the power to renew and transform our minds; as we behold the Word think it, meditate/mutter it, pray over it, speak it-the Jesus/Word are one and the same-He gets all the Glory not our fasting, praying, and so on. As we behold Jesus/Word with our changed from image to image from faith-faith. Man I love the fact that He gets all the Glory! what a load off of me-my business is to do the beholding. That is why it is said Oh Magnify the Lord! whatever you behold/magnify is what controls you.


Obadofin Obadiah's comment on 2013-11-08 04:46:39:

do not subject your body, soul and spirit to the world, because the world is never our home, you can renew your mine through the world of God, prayer and fasting.


Miriam Boye's comment on 2013-09-07 15:51:34:

A renewed mind i may say will bring deliverance to backsliders also. when we let go our distressing and disturbing experiences, devil will have no footstool in our life to cause triggers which will force us to backslide. When there is no change of mind, there is also no change of life.


Mike Nagiar's comment on 2013-06-30 21:41:36:

One thing is clear if our mind is not renewed,out of it would come all sorts of human reasoning,all kinds of old thougths all kind of negativity, all kinds of guilt and condemnation,and all this is connected to our emotions, our emotions they carry a lot of wounds. Thats why the Bible writes our minds is the battle ground where the enemy has access.The enemy's goal is to remind you of the old you,this is where the confusion starts.But God says you are a new creation,old things have passed.the answer we find in Eph.1:17 The moment we start identifying who we are and we recieve God's knowledge through spiritual understanding,it becomes a revelation, we acknowledge our oneness with Christ Jesus.Having the mind of Christ would confirm our newness , new mind,new creation


Charles Dorsey's comment on 2013-03-04 21:18:32:

Romans 12-2 is speaking of a made up mind to allow th
Power of god to take full control of their mind, body,
And inner spirit. There is also a second step to obtaining a renewed and transformed mind,body and spirit. We a a chosen. Generation, we have to allow our self to obtain god nature. We have to ask him to allow us to bear the fruits of his spirit and practice on how to deny ourselves in pur daily walk with him. Its a daily process but a process that bring results.


Samuel Martin's comment on 2013-03-01 05:24:30:

If you do not transform your mind you will never enter the kingdom of God with a worldly mindset.


Timothy Wayne George's comment on 2013-01-29 21:49:37:

This passage is about Christian maturity. We are not to be conformed to this world, but are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. Love not the world, or the things of this world. All that is in the world, the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life. The world and its lust will pass away, but whoever does the will of the Father shall abide forever. So abide in Christ, for He is the vine, and we are the branches. We can only bear fruit as we allow the Holy Spirit to control us, and produce the fruits of the spirit: love, joy, meekness, self control, against such there is no law.
