Redeemed & Restored: TRANSFORM NOT CONFORM

Ep 47 Thumbnail

“Are you conforming to this world?”

Today’s episode of Redeemed & Restored is entitled: ‘Transform Not Conform’. Are you continually being transformed? The renewal of our minds is something only God can do and that is met with discernment and continued time with Him. In the process, steer clear from new Age practices that may be taking the Lords name in vain instead of trusting in Him.

Questions Discussed

  • Are you conforming to this world?
  • What does it mean to be transformed?
  • Are you taking the Lords name in vain?

Episode Verses

  • Romans 12:1-2: “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.”

Athena Dean Holtz Episode Quotes

  • “The Lord will not leave unpunished those who take His name in vain.”
  • “I want to be transformed, I want a metamorphosis in my life where God changes my nature.”
  • “I want to surround myself with those who are not phony Christians. I want to surround myself with those who are being transformed glory to glory.”


Be transformed. Renewed mind. Take the Lords name in vain.

Welcome, I'm Athena!

I start each day by tithing the first hour to the Lord in prayer, reading the word, doing word studies of the Text, and asking God how I can live out what I am reading. This time is usually met with meditation on devotionals that are usually written by dead guys like Oswald Chambers, CS Lewis, Charles Spurgeon, AW Tozer, and Andrew Murray.

Right now, I’m reading a daily devotional with a friend called Tozer on the Almighty God for my focus for the day. It's fun to see individually what pulls us in to spur one another on to good deeds!

The Bible is filled with action steps to walk out in practical and intentional ways. This sets my day in motion to walk it out! I hope this is your heart, too.

Consider this a personal invitation to join me in this journey!
