"Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think," Romans 12:2 (The Passion Translation)
Watch the Think Different video (1 minute in length). This was a commercial for the Apple computer in 1997 and Think Different became their advertising slogan that year.
At the end of the commercial, a series of title cards appeared:
These are people who see the world differently.
They see things in new ways.
They invent, create, imagine.
We make tools for these kinds of people.
Because while some might see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.
This commercial campaign played a pivotal role in helping Apple achieve one of the greatest corporate turnarounds in business history.
Every time I watch that commercial I am inspired. I want to be one of the "crazy ones" to change history. I want the sentences at the end of the commercial to be said about me! What about you? These are people who see the world differently. They see things in new ways. They invent, create, imagine. They think different.
In the Romans 12:2 Scripture, Paul tells us the way to think different~ we need to have a reformation of how we think! Our minds need to be renewed. I have a note in my Bible next to this verse that says this: I will know my mind is renewed when the impossible looks logical! That sounds a lot like the Apple commercial of 1997.
Partner with the Holy Spirit for a renewing of your thinking so it is not only your thoughts that are different but your way of thinking is transformed; to think from a different reality, from heaven to earth. Let's be the "crazy ones" who change the world!
