It is not about being the best versions of ourselves but being renewed, a total change from the inside out. It doesn’t just happen when a new season arrives but when Jesus changes us. Our desires change from selfish to selfless.
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
