As part of my prep for the JUMP kids camp next week, I am studying Romans 12 (that’s the name of the age group I am working with).

Romans 12:2 Do not be shaped by this world; instead be changed within by a new way of thinking. Then you will be able to decide what God wants for you; you will know what what is good and pleasing to him and what is perfect. (NCV)

This is probably one of the most challenging verses in the entire Bible. How do we live in the world, but escape being shaped by it? How do we allow God’s new way of thinking to overpower the negativity of the world?

The first thought is tough, but its the second thought that really draws me in. If we can be renewed by God’s word–the new way of thinking brought in by Jesus–we can know what is pleasing and perfect to God.

I’ve always wanted to know God’s will. It looks like a path is laid out here for me clearly…
