Be Not Conformed To This World

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.  Romans 12:2 KJV
Let us not be so focused on the things of the world that we get conformed (Greek – to fashion alikeconform to the same pattern, fashion self according to), but we be transformed by the renewing of our mind by reading and studying the Word of God. We do see what is taking place through the media (internet, tv, newspapers, etc.), but our focus should be on God and His Word. This is definitely something that we have to work on on a daily basis, because it is too easy to get caught up in what is being said.
The Word tells us in 1 John 2:15 KJV,
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
Let’s make sure our love is for the Father and not the world. Yes, we are in the world, but we’re not of it.
