Transforming into another man Today, there is going to be a transformation in your life.

From curses to blessings, from weaknesses to strength, from poverty to riches, from grace to grace 2Pet 3:18. From death to life Rom 8:11. Main topic My subject matter for tonight s programme is transforming into another man . In 2Cor 5:17, the Bible says that if anyone is in Christ Jesus, he is a new creation. The old has gone, and the new has come. So Christians are new species, new breeds, recreated by God and for that matter are different from others. There is a transformation that begins after we are being born again but most Christians are not aware of this transformation. That is the reason why they are still the same. This transformation comes when we avail ourselves to be touched and used by the Lord. It is my prayer that at the end of this message, your hearts and minds will be transformed into the glorious image of Christ in this changing world. Today, I want to talk about two kinds of transformation; 1. Transforming by the word of God The word of God is life. The word himself is God and when this word is in us, we will also be like him. (elaborate). Heb 4:12 says that for the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and the attitudes of the heart . NB: the soul without the word of God is dead. The Bible at times describes the soul as the mind. So Rom 8:6 says that the mind of a sinful man is death . The Bible also says that from the heart come all kinds of evil. Therefore we need to train ourselves with God s word, else we will remain the way we used to be even though we have comes to Christ. Romans 12:2 tell us that we should not conform any longer to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of our minds. And that is what the word of God does; it penetrates through a diving soul. So if you want transformation and definition for your life, then you must begin to fill your heart with the word of God. God s condition for prosperity can be found in his word. There are people who have to Christ and are still languishing in poverty. This is because they are not feeding of God s word. The word is creative. He created the world with his word so if we want breakthrough, then why don t we feed on his word. Ps 119: 9, how can a young man keep his way pure, Today, we Christians have our minds filled with worldly things. So we seems to be reaching nowhere in our daily lives. Read Psalm 1:1 through and elaborate, Ephesians 4:11-13, meditate Joshua 1:8. How to read the Bible? Read Deut 6:6-8. Doors and houses Babylon boys, against foo ani bewu, even on our stores we write inscriptions like suro onipa,

aben wo ha, oboy figo. Add Deut 30:11-14. Come back to Ps 1:3 2. Transformation by the Spirit of God Isa 32:15-17 What is a desert? It is a thirsty and waterless land. It is a land of venomous snakes and scorpions. Interject with John 7:37-38. Read 1Sam 10:1-7 and end with Isaiah 11:2.
