Being Transformed to Transform

When we are transformed by Jesus, this means that everything we have been in the past has already been changed, because we made a decision and that decision was the best, that of following Christ.

The transformation is that which we receive when we decide to open our hearts so that God enters and does what He wants in us, this change allows us to forget everything we once practiced, everything that we were. But God came and changed us.

And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

Matthew 17:2

The transfiguration of Jesus was amazing, as verse 2 of chapter 17 of the book of Matthew tells us where Jesus shined like the brightness of the sun, this event was wonderful.

All those who were there witnessing that great miracle, that never seen feat, were completely surprised.

And not only the book of Matthew talks about transformation, throughout the Bible we can find many characters that were transformed.

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

2 Corinthians 3:18

Here we can see the expression of the writer of the second letter to the Corinthians making a clarification of how we can contemplate the beauty of Jesus, and seeing this marvelous glory and splendor, we are completely transformed, when looking with open face His majesty, His power.

When we come before God, we must ask that our whole being be changed and that His grace descend upon each one according to His will. If we believe all this will be possible, because God called us to change, so that we can also lead others to that change and that sublime grace that comes from God.

    Being Transformed to Transform
    =======================
    But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
    2 Corinthians 3:18

    What relationship, according to God, can there be between Christ and the Devil, or between light and darkness. No relationship can exist between holiness and wickedness.

    We know that you and me are evil people by nature, so we cannot have fellowship with the Lord Jesus Christ. It is essential that we are changed, transformed.

    People are transformed when the Spirit of God acts in them. Then we have the liberty to draw near to Jesus, the Lord God of heaven and earth, we are made able to feel that we have transgressed the Law of God. Then we confess our sins to the Lord and we begin to run the race of faith.

    We are not conformed to this world and thoughts of people, who do not believe in God, nor His Word, but we are transformed by the renewing of our minds.

    The people of God have been called to help others to be transformed also. We must speak to others, first of all by our good behaviour. Bad words, lying, covetousness or evil intentions do not show that we are followers of Jesus.

    After that we ought to speak about God, Jesus Christ and his plans of salvation for sinners, in order to convince them and so that they may come them to believe and repentance. This can transform and create in them a hope of everlasting life through Jesus Christ, the Lord God, who has died for us all.

    May the Lord God lead us to preach others the good tidings of salvation by His Holy Spirit.
