With a new year comes new year's resolutions! So many make resolutions that involve a change in their lives. But true change or transformation can only come with hard work and consistency. Whether you want to be a premier athlete or just get healthy, a real commitment is required. The same is true with our growth as a Christian. We may not aspire to become a brilliant theologian, but if we are truly saved, there should be a hunger in us to get to know the God who saved us. Truly understanding our salvation, all that it cost, and what is expected of us now that we are a child of God is exactly what matures us as a Christian. It is what keeps us from being rocked when a crisis arises, it’s what keeps us from being mislead by false teachers, its what makes us able to witness an accurate and complete Gospel message to others, and its what makes us more and more resemble Jesus – the very goal of sanctification.
Join us on the transformation journey as we begin in this episode answering questions like, How are we transformed? Why does Jesus divide us His people from the world? How do we cooperate with the Holy Spirit? Why does who we are closest to matter in our transformation? Why does what we put in our minds and how we spend our time matter in our transformation?
