Shake Off Your Dust

Thank God we don’t have to stay the same. Instead, He made a way for us to be forgiven and free, living strong lives and growing more like Him. Romans 12:2 says, “Do not conform any longer 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.”

Holding on to your old, pre-Jesus mindset and dwelling in the past can keep you from knowing God’s will. Isaiah 43:18 says, “Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.” In Christ, you have been made new. Shake off the dust from your past so you can see what God has next for you.
