Romans 12
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.
Regardless of what year, God’s goal for us in transformation
To live transformed lives, to have transformational relationships in the church and to be involved on transforming lives. 
1. The Renewing of our Mind
  • Where it begins – The Renewing of the Mind
  • We have worldview or mindset that functions as a life lens
  • Worldview shaped by: 
    • Temperament
    • Environment (Culture)
    • Parenting/Family Upbringing
    • Experiences
  • We need to allow God to renew our minds
  • Where we place our mind is where we place our focus
  • What we focus on is what we become
2. The Renewing of our Hearts
There is a direct connection between the heart and mind
“As a man thinks in his heart, so he is” 
Proverbs 23:7 (KJV)
3. Transformational Relationships
Colossians 1:28-29
Relationships are essential for our transformation
Relationships are necessary for spiritual growth
Relationships help us stay focused and stay on track (Hebrews 3:12-13)
