I never have cared for the taste of jello, but I was always fascinated by it as a child. I remember watching my mom as she would place watery jello into a jello-mold, then place it in the refrigerator, a little time later out it would come with much ceremony, the mold would be flipped upside down onto a plate and out would come a duplicate of the mold. I was always impressed by it’s transformation!
So what are you allowing to shape and mold you?
I was thinking about how it is the jello that conforms or is transformed by what contains or molds it into shape. When the jello goes into the mold it has the nature of something that is fluid and pliable; it then converts into something that is of substance and takes on it’s shape.
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.” (NIV)
So again I will ask you; what are you allowing to influence and shape you as a person…what are you rubbing elbows with in this place we call home?
Jesus knew who to keep connected to and then how to reflect that which is transforming.
2 Corinthians 3:17-18, “The Lord and the Spirit are one and the same, and the Lord’s Spirit sets us free. So our faces are not covered. They show the bright glory of the Lord, as the Lord’s Spirit makes us more and more like our glorious Lord.” (CEV)
How about you? What pattern is shaping your form?…Here is a voice of wisdom…
Spend time with the Lord for He is good. And then your face will be bright with a reflection of “His Glorious Love”!
