Di's Fav Verse

One of my favourite scriptures has always been Romans 12 verses 1 - 2.

Yesterday I fell in love with it again, reading it in the Message. I don't know about you but sometimes reading a different bible translation can, from time to time help me see God's word in a new light. Enjoy!

Place Your Life Before God
So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
