• “The greatest satisfaction I can have is the knowledge that He is what He is; and that, being what He is, He never will be otherwise. If I am saved at last, it will be the free gift of God; since I have no worth and no merit of my own.” – Madame Guyon

Transformation by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 04/28/11

 

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Some churches have started having “Harvest Parties” in October, where kids can dress up in costumes and have fun. But that’s not the only time people wear costumes to church.

Some people are selfish, angry, bitter, and lazy all week. Then they put on a “good Christian” mask before coming to church. But that costume doesn’t make them more like Jesus.

Imagine a girl in a butterfly costume. It may be cute, but it doesn’t make her a butterfly. On the other hand, when a caterpillar wraps itself in a cocoon and emerges as a butterfly, real transformation has taken place. That’s what Christ offers us—real transformation.

Permanent transformation is what Christ offers us. Second Corinthians 3:18 says, “We . . . are being transformed into his likeness.”

Are you ready to be transformed? Then take off your mask, confess your sin, and ask God to make you like Jesus.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
