Romans 12:2 (AMP) Do not be conformed to this world (this age), fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs, but be transformed (changed) by the entire renewal of your mind by its new ideals and its new attitude, so that you may prove for yourselves what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect in His sight for you.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (KJV) Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
After having a long conversation with a relative the other evening, my eyes were open to something that they were never open to before! I get excited about how the Holy Spirit continues to love on me and reveal truth to me!
Have you ever realized just how simple and plan Truth really is? Like it’s true or it isn't. There are no grey areas. For instance the grass is green, the sky is blue, and the stove is hot. The truth that I discovered was just as simple.
What we can beginning to understand is, the more we come to know and understand what God says concerning us and believe it, we allow him, the Holy Spirit, to transform us even more.
The Scripture says,
John 8:31- 32 (KJV) Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Note that it says if you continue in my word. That simply means if we continue in the teaching of; studying and applying the teachings of the Truth, which is Jesus, then we may be considered a disciple, a true follower; true student. A good student should be as his teacher and reflect what he was taught (Luke 6:40).
It also says that you will know the truth and that truth is what sets us free. We, believers of today, come to know the truth by studying the Scriptures and receive sound biblical teaching. The truth becomes more obvious and we then are able to build a relationship with Him. The truth is the Lord and all his attributes (John 14:6, 17 and 15:26).
Therefore as we are taught and as we study the Word of God, our relationship with the Lord grows. This relationship, as with any healthy relationship will not only cause us to introspect but it will also have an effect on us. We should therefore begin to see change within ourselves. The self we ought to begin seeing is the transformed you and me.
