“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 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.”
Romans 12:1-2 NIV
“Transformers. More than meets the eye.”
Transformers was one of my favorite cartoons as a kid. The infamous battle between the autobots and decpticons. These robots from other planets crash land on earth. They are able to disguise themselves because they take the form of things that look like what we have here on planet earth. If you’ve never seen the cartoon I’m sure you’ve seen one the movies.
This parallels our walk here on earth as Christians after we have been born again. We are in this world, but we are not of this world. We take on forms to maneuver through this life. We have an enemy, but it is not the people we see here. It is an enemy from another place hidden in plain sight.
We have to take into consideration that as we walk in this life everything we physically see isn’t always what it seems. We have the Spirit of God to lead us and guide us into all truth. We can’t allow the events we see in the natural to cloud our judgement and cause us to live in fear. We must allow God’s word to resonate in our hearts and minds; to give us the resolve we need to endure tough times. Continually allowing the word to transform us on the inside.
That leads us to our Throwback Theology Song of the Week. This song comes from the boy out Wash Heights in New York – Andy Mineo. The featured song is from his 2012 mixtape, “Saturday Morning Car-Tunez.” The featured song is called “Hands High” and features a sample of the beat from the Busta Rhymes song, “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See.” Andy remixes the song to give the effect of how God takes things and uses them for His glory. Tune into Trackstarz to hear DJ Jeremaya spin this for the Throwback Theology Song of the Day. Until next time…
