Today, death is closer for us all. Time is on a one-way march. Each day we live brings us closer to the end of our life. We have less time to prepare for eternity. Since we have less time, each day and the actions of each day become more important.

We need to renew our mind so that our daily life is devoted to God (Rom. 12:1, 2). We must have our priorities straight. Let us avoid distractions and grow stronger day by day; offering ourselves as a living sacrifice.

This study covers two points:
(1) not conformed, but transformed;
(2) renewing of your mind.
