Here is an interesting story that I received in an email last week. It is a historical story about the impact of transforming yourself to follow the Christ, and how obedience to him can really change your world. Take a moment and read it.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:2 New International Version (©1984)
