Transformation

I love living in Colorado – the change from season to season is such a joy to me. The trees, the weather, the change in temperature – the state transforms. There was a lot of conversation on Sunday in church about Transformation. Many examples of transformation exist. Amazon transformed the way we shop from retail stores to online sales. Martin Luther transformed the Catholic Church. Martin Luther King, Jr, was knows as a transformational leader. Transformational leadership, “Transformational leadership starts with the development of a vision, a view of the future that will excite and convert potential followers.” This results in not only the goal or vision of an organization shifting, but the individuals, themselves, experiencing transformation.

Romans 12:1-21 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. 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. For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another. ...

On Sunday, Pastor Dave mentioned the transformation from silos of church, state, and home, to a more holistic approach to our lives. And, the charge came to transform ourselves, become more Christ-like, and help others.

2 Corinthians 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things become new.
