Transformation

Becoming. What are you becoming? What am I becoming? The promise that is at the heart of the scriptures is that we, if we will allow God to do it, all are being transformed.

Transformation is becoming something different. The worm becomes a butterfly. The ordinary teenagers become super heroes in the Mighty Morphin Power Ranger. Okay, that one was just a TV show, but they became something new.

In the scriptures we are also given a picture of what we are to become if we will allow God to transform us and work in us-- if we will really follow him with our lives. What followers of Jesus are to become is like Jesus. To love like Jesus. To have a heart like Jesus. To have the character of Jesus. To care for others like Jesus. To have the mind of Jesus.

You and I are to become something new. For our world to become new we must become new.

What are you becoming? Are we being transformed by our relationship with Christ? It is the promise. As we are being transformed what are we doing to transform the world around us? As we are becoming what are we doing to help others become.

As they said on that TV show, "It's Morphin Time!"


Love today.

In Christ Love and mine,
Doug
