Sermons about Transformation
In Christ, diversity can be beautiful. The Holy Spirit is in the business of transformation. Our real enemy is Satan.
Our world is changing. We are changing. Or at least, we should be changing. We begin a new series looking at change. We'll discover that not only must we change, we will be better off for changing. Can you spare a little change?
God is ready to take us from transition to transformation!! This Is Our Year!!
In His mercy, God redeedmed His people out of sin and into new life. The Christian's appropriate response is to recognize that which is true, namely, that you belong to God as an act of volition on the basis of God's merciful works of Creation and redemption. This entails an ongoing commitment to serve Him. How does this play out in real life. First, don't be conformed by this world. Second, be transformed by the Holy Spirit. Third, change the way you think by listening to God's truth while rejecting the world's lies.
God loves us too much to let us stay where we are.
Jesus disciple, John, has an interesting journey. From being a man with the nickname “son of thunder” to one who writes so passionately about love as in our passage today. He’s one who’s encountered Jesus and has had his heart transformed. We too need to meet this God of love so can truly be ones who love our neighbour.
Romans 10:17 Faith comes by hearing and hearing from the word of God. 3 people of the gospel The leper, Zacchaeus and the woman with the issue of blood. All heard Jesus speak and faith rose in them and they responded by draw near to Jesus for transformation. They in cause those around them to respond. Others need to hear the word of God speak from our lives, and they will respond to Jesus.
The story of Zacchaeus being "small" in Luke is not just about his physical stature... It's also about how he was perceived in his society because of his past actions. But he sought to see Jesus, and Jesus SAW him. As a result of this encounter, Zacchaeus was no longer "small," at least in his place in society. Christ does the same for us...
