The Difference Between Worldliness and Godliness

The difference between worldliness and godliness is a renewed mind. 
-Erwin W. Lutzer

Turn thou us unto thee, O Lord, and we shall be turned, 
renew our days as of old. Lamentation 5:21

Do not conform any longer 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 12:2

Though this outer human nature of ours may be falling into decay, 
at the same time our inner human nature is renewed day by  day.  
2 Corinthians 4:16

By the reading of Scripture I am so renewed 
that all nature seems renewed around me and with me.  
Thomas Merton

Do not lie to one another, 
seeing that you have stripped off the old self with its practices 
and have clothed yourselves with the new self, 
which is being renewed in knowledge 
according to the image of its creator.
Colossians 3:9-10

A humble, lowly, contrite heart
Believing, true, and clean.
Which neither life nor death can part
From Him that dwells within,
Thy nature, gracious Lord, impart.
Come quickly from above;
Write Thy new Name upon my heart,
They new best Name of love.
Charles Wesley
