"Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds; And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him:" Colossians 3:9-10
"But ye have not so learned Christ;
If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness." Ephesians 4:20-24
What is conforming to this world?
Having the same goals and pursuits as the non-christian, being un-Christ-like, not differentiable from the non-christian.
How do I become Christ-like, different?
By renewing my mind
How can I 'renew my mind' ?
It is 'renewed [by the] knowledge...of Him that created him.'
Where do I find knowledge of God?
What do I do with the knowledge from His Word?
Take action on it! "... Put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness."
"I want to serve the Lord Jesus wholeheartedly, unabashedly, with every single thing I do all day long every day!"

Tonight, everyone post a scripture that God gave you today!
