Romans 12:2 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.

When we truly have a heart for God and desire to please Him, we’ll want to make sure we’re doing everything correctly. We want to make sure our “t’s” are crossed and our “i’s” are dotted. Ultimately, we desire to get to a place where everything we do pleases God and every thought aligns with His will.

Unfortunately, because we’re in the flesh, we’ll constantly be under construction. We’ll never be nor should we desire to be in a position where we know it all. Because God and His ways are holy, perfect, and infinite, we’ll constantly make adjustments in our lives. We’ll constantly get revelation of God’s Word, we’ll constantly receive correction on our attitudes, and we’ll constantly be disciplined about our behavior.

Don’t beat yourselves up because we don’t have it all together or we missed it in one area or another. Understand that as long as we live in this world, we are and we’ll always be under construction.
