Let God Transform You

Series: Recalibrate | Week 10: Honoring Government When Government Isn’t Always Honorable

Day One Romans 12:1-2

Pray: Invite God into your time and ask Him to speak to you, then read the passage.

“And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice – the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. 2 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. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” Romans 12:1-2 (NLT)
