TOPIC: LET GOD TRANSFORM YOU
TEXT: Romans 12:2 “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is
that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
Our self-image is formed early on, based on feedback from parents, teachers and other authority figures—and changing it isn’t easy.
Transformation doesn’t come from inspiration (or perspiration), but from letting the Holy Spirit transform you. How? ‘By renewing your mind.’ God made the first transformer. He created man in such a way that He could pull a woman out of him. From one creative act God transformed the man into a marriage, the marriage into a family, and the family into a society. He never reached back into the ground again because the power to transform was intrinsically placed in man. All potentials are locked into your spirit.
So for the Christian, transformation at its optimum is the outworking Of the internal. God placed certain things in you that must come Out…and when you’re tired of trying to unlock your own resources, allow Him to release in you the power to become whatever you need to be.’ ‘But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God’ (John 1:12 NKJV). Christ empowers us to slip out of who we were forced to be, and transforms us into who He created us to be. – Realising that the present world system is evil and under Satan’s rule. — We must stand against the spirit of the world. – Despise what is evil and love what is righteous. — Have the mind of Christ, think like Him. — Our goals, plans are determined by heavenly and eternal truth and not this transient, temporal and evil age.
