Growing in Christ: Get rid of the gunk!
Yesterday, I ended my evening washing a pan out, that had been soaking on the kitchen counter. As I scrubbed away the once hard residue, off the pan. I am reminded of a life of a Christian.
The more time you spend with Christ, the more you become like Him. There is a transformation of the mind; old thinking is slowly replaced with Christ thinking ! Sinful nature, is placed under the authority of a righteous, Christ nature! You become more, and more like Jesus, the longer you saturated yourself in Him... Like that dirty pan, that once had stuck on gunk! It is easily transformed into a clean pan, the longer it soaked in the water! Hallelujah!
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.)
The bible tells us here...
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.
The only way that our minds can ever be renewed/ transformed is by the word of God! Reading, studying, and praying. Spending time with our Heavenly Father and soaking in His presence. Allow Christ to wash away everything that hinders our spiritual growth with Christ. Transforming our old ways into His ways!
Today, have you soaked yourself in the word of God? Are you allowing Christ to continue to transform you? Are you reading your bible ?
I love, love, love! How Paul puts HIS TRANSFORMATION ...
20 I have been crucified with Christ [in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ (the Messiah) lives in me; and the life I now live in the body I live by faith in (by adherence to and reliance on and complete trust in) the Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
Paul is one of the greatest example of a transformation! A persecutor of Christian, who recieved a spiritual heart transplant!
Gooood morning King Jesus !! Gooood morning FB family and friends! Have a blessed Tuesday, love Sis Rashida
