Today’s Reading – Romans 11-13
So, brothers and sisters, because of God’s mercies, I encourage you to present your bodies as a living sacrifice that is holy and pleasing to God. This is your appropriate priestly service. Don’t be conformed to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds so that you can figure out what God’s will is—what is good and pleasing and mature. Romans 12:1-2 CEB
I confess I have always liked transformers. I even watched the cartoon while I was in college. I have enjoyed connecting the past with the present by sharing the movies with my son.
There is perhaps a lot of theology to be discovered in The Transformers and Optimus Prime, but I will not go there today.
Paul writes that we are to be transformed.
I think the problem with transforming is that most Christians try to live like the transformers – doing everything they can to blend in to society – believing that when the moment comes they can transform into a Christian.
It just doesn’t work that way!
We are to be transformed every moment of every day.
That is how it should be in our lives.
That doesn’t make for a great movie, but it does make for a great life serving Christ.
