MANY TEACHINGS ON TRANSFORMING LIVES STILL POINT TO ONESELF TO DO IT INSTEAD OF THE HOLY SPIRIT WHO WAS TASKED FOR IT. BEAR IN MIND THAT WE CANNOT CHANGE ON OUR OWN; WE NEED THE HOLY SPIRIT TO TRANSFORM US FROM GLORY TO GLORY. (2Cor 3:18). “But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed (metamorphoo) into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord”. HOWEVER, THE NECESSARY INGREDIENT IN TRANSFORMING US FROM GLORY TO GLORY IS THE “BEHOLDING THE GLORY OF THE LORD”.
FOR THIS REASON, THE HOLY SPIRIT WAS SENT TO UNVEIL THE GLORY OF THE LORD; HIS LOVE, HIS GRACE, HIS FINISHED WORK ON THE CROSS AND HIS NEW COVENANT. IN FACT, MESSAGES FROM THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL ALWAYS BE CHRIST-CENTERED AND CHRIST-EXALTING.
(John 15:26) “When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, HE WILL TESTIFY ABOUT ME”
(John 16:14) “HE WILL BRING GLORY TO ME by taking from what is mine and making it known to you”
(John 16:13) “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. HE WILL NOT SPEAK ON HIS OWN; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.”
SPIRITUAL FEEDING PLAYS A VERY IMPORTANT PART IN OUR TRANSFORMATION. WE NEED TO BE FED WITH THE “BREAD OF LIFE” (CHRIST-CENTERED AND CHRIST-EXALTING MESSAGES) IN ORDER FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT TO START THE PROCESS OF “METAMORPHOSIS” IN OUR LIVES.
IT’S ALL ABOUT JESUS!
Please bear with me for using all capital letters for my comments and small letters for my bible verses. You see, Facebook does not allow bold, italics or the use of different fonts. I tried using all caps for my bible verses and small letters for my comments, but it looked awkward. Thank you for your understanding.
