Topic: BE TRANSFORMED
Bible Reading: 2 Corinthians 6:16-17
📖16….”And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
📖17….Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.”
🔥Christ brought Christianity for man to know how to live as the Creator lives. It is a transforming nugget of God for the man that believes and accepts it. But today, many believers have deviated from the doctrines of Christ they came to God for, and are now conformists to the very ways Christianity came to transform us from. The in thing in the world today is how people can outshine originators in their own devilish inventions. When a man creates a social ill and madness, others want to copy the creator until they become more sick and lunatic than the originator. Even Christians have been overtaken by this trend.
🔥🔥When we like someone’s idea and so, like the owner of the idea, and we want to progress above him, by putting ourselves in the stead of that person and actually desiring to be that person, we are conforming. The Christian is warned in Romans 12:2 not to conform to this world, but to be transformed not by imitating world champions, but by renewing our minds through the imitation of Christ…Ephesians 5:1-2, and his truthful adherents…1 Corinthians 11:1. To do this, 2 Corinthians 6:17 asked us to come out and be separated from those in synergy with the world.
🔥🔥🔥Beloved, God is not worried about how popular you are. The purpose of the Gospel is to separate you from worldly popularity; because it idolizes a believer (2 Cor 6:16). That’s why our text says be ye separate. God wants us to be light, salt and a city on hilltop for the world… Matthew 5:13-14, by standing out rather than fitting in. Beloveth, whatever is in vogue, and you find out that you do not fit into, rejoice because you were never made in the image of the world, rather in the image of the Almighty God. So, struggle to fit into God by constant transformation from worldly conformity.
🙏Precious father, let my attitude earn the Church a good name in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏O Lord, as the believers were called Christians in Antioch because of their imitation of Christ, help me to be so identified wherever I am, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Precious Father, help my children and wards never to conform to satanic and demonic influences at school, in Jesus’ name.
