Romans 12:1-2 ~ The Renewing of the Mind

There are different Greek words that describe different functions of the brain.  Nous is the perceptive ability of the brain.  Be transformed in the area of your perceptions.  This transformation through renewal of my mind gives me the ability to test all things and either approve of or disapprove of them being the good, well pleasing, and perfect will of God.  Moreover, it is a fact that I arrive at serving Him the way I should through the renewing of my mind.  Without the renewing of the mind one cannot serve the Lord as He has called us to do.  The renewing of the mind does not happen arbitrarily, randomly, whenever God wants to do it; God has designed that it happens through the Word.
