Having urged us to offer ourselves entirely to God, Paul now tells us that we should not allow ourselves to be shaped by this world’s thought and lifestyle but instead we should apply God’s Word to our thinking, teaching us what His will is.

We work this out in practice and see how differently many in the church now behave compared with what is urged upon us here. We are all encouraged to examine our lives to see in what ways we may have adopted worldly ideas and to turn back from them to God’s Word.
