Some time ago, a very familiar and frequently quoted Scripture surfaced over and over again at the Forum on Human Sexuality in Kingston, Jamaica.

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” Romans 12:2

But, practically speaking, how is that accomplished by someone like myself that for many, many years lived life by the patterns of this world?

1. I had to agree with God that I had been greatly deceived.

2. I had to agree with God that I had been believing a lie and I had to repent for doing so.

3. I had to allow, I needed to give God permission to show me just how destructive the lie I bought into and believed really was.

4. I had to reject the lie(s) I had believed for such a long time and then choose to believe what God says to be true.

5. I had to decide and choose to stand on the many truths God disclosed to me about myself instead of how I would normally have responded to life’s scenarios and circumstances.

By the way, all of the above mentioned practical points often, very often, involved pushing through strong feelings and emotions that did everything they possibly could to sway me from doing what was right.

Without a doubt, the greatest battle was learning to value truth because it is true, and not just because it felt true.

Ultimately, like a multitude of others, I had to purpose to obediently and confidently take God at His word.
