Do As The Romans Do?

Key Verse

“And be not conformed to this world; but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God” (Romans 12:2).

Text — Romans 12: 1-3


According to an age long saying, “When in Rome do as the Romans Do.” This saying dates back to the 14th century. The phrase simply means adapting yourself to the customs or situation of the people in a certain place and behaving like they do. However, such submission contradicts God’s word, which insists on holiness and righteousness as revealed strictly in scriptures. 

Thus, any practice or principle which does not align with the Bible must be rejected as a doctrine of men and of the devil. The Bible expressly says, ” Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).

According to our text, we are not to be conformed to this world; instead, we should allow God’s word to transform us and renew our minds so that we will only do what is God’s perfect will. Beloved, allow the Holy Spirit through God’s word to transform your life today, so that you can also be an agent of change bringing sinners to the Lord.


Be an agent of change


A Christian does not flow with the tide.

Prayer for today

Lord, make me an agent of change.
