I Am Being Transformed Into His Likeness

Daily God Walk for Friday, October 28, 2011

 We, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. – 2 Corinthians 3:18

 Thank God for his transforming power. When we come to Christ we are opposite of God in just about every way. Where God is others-centric we are self-centered. God is pure in everyway and we become contaminated by the world in just about every way.

In the midst of our fallen and broken state the Lord of the universe reaches down into humanity, puts his hand on us and says, “I want you.” When we respond to him we begin an eternal journey.

None of us who started out serving God were saintly in the beginning, but as Holy Spirit began to do his work in us we started to change. It is this changing process which is transforming us into his likeness.

Next to the message of salvation the most important message I preach is the need for change. We cannot continue to be the person we were when we came to Christ and we will never become mature followers of Christ if we don’t allow Holy Spirit to change us day by day.

Paul follows this promise of a transforming relationship with the Spirit with reminding the readers that at one time we were all blinded to the truth of the gospel and the power that was available to us to live above sin. He concludes the next chapter with, “Inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen.”

We are being renewed day by day as we are becoming the person God originally intended us to become. That is why I often speak of the lifetime process of being reconciled to God, renewed by the Holy Spirit, and being restored to the person God intended us to become. I am not what I used to be, and I am not yet what I am going to be, for I am being transformed into his likeness.

 Prayer: Lord, help to submit to your transforming power. Amen.
