We live in a time like never before, people are so unhappy with their appearance that they are spending fortunes to be transformed by the hand of the plastic surgeon. The Word of God has an answer: “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” (Romans 12:2). Yes, God has a plan and process for you to be transformed from the inside out.
Michael Jackson was so obsessed with changing his appearance to look like Diana Ross that, he paid millions to be transformed by the cut, snips, tucks and pulls of plastic surgery. But unfortunately this human effort to transform Michael Jackson only left him with a freakishly disfigured nose.
Romans 12:1-2 has a better approach to total transformation: (1) Receive the mercy of God available through Christ; (2) offer your body a living sacrifice to Him; (3) refuse to let the world press you into its mold; (4) renew your mind daily with Scripture; (5) trust God to transform you from within; and (6) commit to fulfilling His good and acceptable perfect will day by day.
When we encounter the holiness of God, we are transformed, not by plastic surgery but by spiritual renewal. True transformation isn’t from the outside in, but from the inside out. Come check us out at New Melle Baptist Church and learn more about God’s great transformation program.
