One More Thought...

So I finished John this past Thursday, and I happen to love the book of Romans. I figured it'd be a good follow-up. Well, it's so cool that even after reading the book of Romans before, new perceptions have come to my mind even in the first two chapters. I love how wherever we are in life, the Bible is chock-full of stories and passages that can relate to us.

One such passage I read today is in Romans 2:29: "And true circumcision is not merely obeying the letter of the law; rather, it is a change of heart produced by God's Spirit. And a person with a changed heart seeks praise from God, not from people."

I suppose this verse relates to my life right now. Especially being in high school, it's so easy to solely seek the approval of my peers and those around me. But a truly changed heart seeks God's approval rather than man's. I know that this is definitely something that I need to keep reminding myself, for in the end, God is all that is going to matter. Fads, fashions, trends, and relationships are temporary--but God's truth and love for the world will never end.

So if not fitting in is the result of living in God's love and truth, then I guess I won't fit in!! Easier said than done, but it's worth it!

  1. I always find it neat that I could read the same passage on two different days and I find new insight that I did not see the day before...
