“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”Romans 12:2 KJV
“Be not conformed” meaning we should not fit into the mold of moral character of the world.
“But be transformed” the Greek word used here is metamorphoo which is where we get our English word metamorphosis which means to change a form or nature of a thing or person into a completely different one. We desperately need to renew our minds from the truth in God’s word in order to change our moral values into that of Jesus Christ. If a person does not change the way they think they will always make the same mistakes or wrong choices or sins over and over. The ways of the world tarnish our view of the will of God.
“Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.” Matthew 5:8 KJV
