Credibility Through Spiritual Transformation


"And we, who with unveiled faces reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into His likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit" (2 Cor.3:18).

In some areas, having a little bit of something is not so good. Having just a little bit of food, money, clothing or health insurance is not very good. If we can be just a "little bit" like Jesus however, we are on our way to bigger and better things. I believe that having true credibility is about having Christ-like traits. I also think that God sees that potential in all of us...The potential to be credible Christians by being like His Son. That means being more spiritual, and spirituality comes from God and not ourselves. Doing things right is not the same as doing the right things. Doing good things in a superficial manner just isn't the way the Lord wants us to act. He wants our hearts to be transformed so that we become His servants for all the right reasons. Spiritual transformation is not easy...To become more Christ-like, we must look into the face of Jesus. There are millions of people in the world who claim to be religious....GOD WANTS MORE!!! If we are to gain true credibility it takes more than just being religious. It takes a transformation..."Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind" (Rom.12:2) Paul goes even farther by explaining the result..."Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is----his good, pleasing and perfect will" We will then gain credibility both in the eyes of God and man....

Have a wonderful day... Make a difference.... Love mark Phil.4:11
