And do not conform to this world, but be transformed
by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good
and acceptable and perfect will of God.
As the believer maintains an attitude of surrender, a daily change takes place in his life. “To be conformed” means “to become like” or “to take the shape of.” The surrendered believer is no longer conformed to the policies, fashions, and practices of the world about him. In fact, there is a distinctiveness of lifestyle that sets him apart from the carnal man. So many Christians are like chameleons that change their color according to their surroundings. You cannot tell the difference between them and the unconverted.
