- Romans 12:2 NLT
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
Stop letting the world mold and shape you.
- 1 John 2:17 NIV
The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
