The Word of God is to transform you from your spirit to your flesh. It is to renew your mind in Christ Jesus. At some point the same scripture that you read must make it’s way off of the pages in the Bible, and into your heart. Live your life according to Christ.
We live out God’s will when we change our thoughts to God’s thoughts, rather than living like the world dictates. The world will always pressure us to live sinfully and selfishly, but to live the good life God wants from us requires changing how we behave—by changing our thoughts.
“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
