Transformed - By the renewing of your mind
Are you familiar with the toys called “Transformers?”
Each one starts out looking like one thing, then various parts move so the whole thing becomes something totally different. Some parts stay the same; others change to take on the appearance of something with a different purpose—a powerful robot. But, it’s not rightly named. The toy gets transformed by me—not itself. It should be called “transformable.” This toy makes a good visual of how, in real life, I am not a transformer either, but one who is transformable in the hands of the living Christ and His transforming power. And, while this toy won’t resist me because it has no will of its own, we can resist our transformer out of fear of the unfamiliar, because of stubbornness—not being convinced that we need transforming, or out of ignorance—not knowing it’s available to us. So, how do we cooperate with our transformer?
Join us as we explore daring to be different - daring to be transformed.
