Romans 12:2 shows us how to make another choice: whether or not to know God’s will. We can read the Bible all we want. We may even memorize big chunks of it. Still, if we let our hearts and minds be shaped by the values of the world, we shouldn’t expect to understand what God wants for us or anyone else.
But if we have ears and allow the Word of God to reshape us, then we can figure out what God wants. That may not seem like a big deal when things are running well. But once we get in a pinch, there may not be a lot of time for reshaping.
