What Pattern to Live By?


Do not conform 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 NIV

Sometimes we are so used to doing things the world’s way that we never question it. But as we seek God in prayer and read His Word we learn the true pattern to live by. It is definitely not the same agenda as the world’s, and the heart’s desire is not the same.

With an agenda that has been transformed by God’s grace, you may find yourself speaking more boldly about how God has moved in your life, or perhaps you may find yourself dealing more kindly with a tough situation or person at work.

You find yourself transformed—humbly seeking to live your daily life as a follower of Christ—facing situations with the kind of peace, assurance, and hope that this world can never understand

Prayer Focus

  • Pray that you will conform to God’s way, not the world’s way
  • Pray for God to renew your thinking, open your eyes to see and your ears to hear what He is showing and speaking to you.
