Why Transformation?

Continuing with the thought of being transformed by God, let's take a look at why this is such a crucial part of discipleship.  First, consider the reason one needs to be transformed. We are all sinners saved by grace and born with a spirit that is corruptible.  In order for God to use us for His will we need to be born again, or we need the incorruptible seed, Jesus.  Why is this important? Without God, man cannot and without man, God cannot on Earth.  There is only one way to the Father and that is through Jesus.  No Jesus = No transformation.

Secondly, the other reason for transformation is when you are able to be transformed in your heart, God is able to move you to areas where transformation also needs to happen, to change the environment.  The adversity you are experiencing is because YOU are a change agent.  God's spirit in you, disrupts the atmosphere.  The reality is the place you are in, is conducive to change, you just have to be there long enough for the effects to take place.  His presence brings glory, transformational glory.  2 Corinthians 3:18 says, "And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit." Amen!

Lastly, your transformation is not just about you, your transformation is to help others as well. This is the call of Jesus. This is why you cannot be easily lured out of the environments that shake you up. There is no education like adversity. The devil would love for you to be chased out of a thriving environment, but instead this is how you learn how much you have grown through Christ. This is when you see the mercy and grace. This is when you see the saving power of God.

Let your prayer be that God continues mold you like clay and to use you to bless others with HIS glory.
