God changes people


God's power to transform

This is the oft-overlooked part of the gospel. God changes people. I thank God I’m not the same, that my sin is not my identity. I’m so glad there is a Higher Power that can endow me with power to become what I want, a worthy servant of the Most High. Thank God for His effectual power to transform people.

Sometimes in the Bible, the transformation wrought was so revolutionary that God even changed the person’s name. Thus, Abraam became Abraham; Jacob, Israel; and Simon, Peter.

    Amen! Where would I be without this transforming power? I shudder to think. Love that comic, by the way. 🙂

  2. Wouldn’t it be great to have our name change once we do? 💟

  3. I believe He’s still in the business of changing people!
