The Transformed Life

  • AND GOD SAID: Let us FORM man in our image.
  • THE DEVIL SAYS: I will DEFORM man by sin.
  • THE WORLD SAYS: We must CONFORM man in our image.
  • EDUCATION SAYS: Let us INFORM man by knowledge.
  • SOCIETY SAYS: We will REFORM man by culture.
  • ONLY CHRIST SAYS: I will TRANSFORM man by grace.

Sun Kissed

Our Bible study this week (Wednesday night September 16th), will be from Romans 12:1-2. Please have read Romans up through Romans 12!

The above image is from Tulane University. It illustrates the metamorphosis of the Monarch Butterfly. Paul uses the Greek word μεταμορφόω (Transliteration: metamorphoō) to speak of the transformation that the consecrated believer experiences (“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God”)!
