Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. (Romans 12:2a NLT)
Have you ever noticed that no one has to teach kids to be defiant? The word "No!" is often one of the first words they master.
Humans are rebellious by nature. We have rebelled against God; that is the essence of sin.
But our understanding of sin is clouded by modern baggage. What the original Hebrew and Greek terms mean is "to miss the goal" or "to miss the target".
The new life in Christ is a process: we must allow God to transform us by submitting our thoughts and our entire lives to him.
Transformation of this level takes time, like the metamorphosis of a catepillar into a butterfly.
