..."rethink your thinking" or "reimagine" your life in view of new alternatives. The instruction to "repent" or "reimagine" is meant to shock and arrest, to incite us to rethink our goals and priorities, to call into question our previous ways and awaken us to new possibilities. We reimagine our lives by allowing the Creator to examine our thoughts, attitudes, motives, and behavior.Doing this, says Scandrette, is our “entrance into the kingdom dance.” When we trust that God is who he says and can do what he says—when we rethink our thinking, turn from our old way of thinking and grasp the new opportunity Jesus gives us—we find new life. Our relationships with God, others and the world are changed—we are now enabled to live as we were created, both with God and others. As we walk and work with God in learning to live in that new life, we become, as Dallas Willard and others put it in The Renovare Spiritual Formation Bible, “the kind of person who embodies the goodness of God.”
