Changing or Being Changed (Part 2)
Are we CHANGING (conforming more and more to the things of this world) or are we BEING CHANGED by the power of God?
Romans 12:2 (ESV)
2 Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
1 Samuel 10:6
6 The Spirit of the Lord will come powerfully upon you…and you will be changed into a different person.
Today I want to begin looking into the scriptures to see how lives were changed by the power of God. With each one, I want you to try to put yourselves in their place. Imagine what their lives and situations were like before meeting Jesus. Think about how greatly they were changed by the power of God. Picture how they must have felt about the change that Jesus brought to their lives.
