Word for Today: The word of God is transforming.
Ministry Of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality (TS)
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Rm 12: 2).
Greetings to everyone in contact with this message in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. You are blessed indeed.
As we study and meditate on the word of God, the Word has the capacity to renew and transform us. God is eager to transform us to the image of his first born Son, Jesus Christ. The Scripture says:
“For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren” (Rm 8:29).
Brethren, no one can become the son of God by his own strength. It’s by grace alone. We are empowered by the Holy Ghost. The only thing required of us is faith in the Word. The Scripture says:
“But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” (John 1:12).
Jesus Christ, himself enables us to know that no one can receive him (ie believe him or have faith in him), unless his Father draws that person:
“No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:44).
My beloved brethren, our memory verse above assure us that the word of God is capable of transforming us to the image of Christ by renewing our mind. God does not want us to conform to the pattern and principles of this world.
The plan of God in our lives is to transform us to the image and likeness of his first born Son, Jesus Christ. Hence brother Paul says:
“For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God” (Rm 8:19).
In the course of my clinical practice as a psychiatrist, I have seen very many people go through unnecessary torment, bondage, oppressions, diseases, sickness, fear etc. The word of Proverbs says it is not good for the soul to be without knowledge: “Also, that the soul be without knowledge, it is not good; and he that hasteth with his feet sinneth” (Prov 19:2).
The Holy Spirit in Christ Jesus, is the most powerful spirit in heaven, earth, and underneath the earth. Having the understanding and willingly surrendering our human spirit to the Lordship of the Holy Spirit in Christ Jesus guarantees us joy, peace, harmony, divine health, and freedom indeed(John 8:36). This is the truth of the gospel. It is not merely about regularly ”going to Church” in the superficial sense, though fellowship is very important. It’s about discovering the word of God for yourself. It is about allowing yourself to be transformed personally, by the power in the word of God.
Stay connected with Jesus, the Word; the wisdom and power of God; the Spirit of God.
Father, we ask for your grace of transformation as we study your word in Jesus name. Amen .
Thank you Jesus for your grace.
Blood of Jesus.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
