The Process of Transformation

By Pastor John Price

Wednesday, January 17, 2007

2 Timothy 3:16-17

16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. NKJV

THREE DOLLARS WORTH OF GOD

Tim Hansel once said in His book “ When I relax I feel guilty” I would like to buy $3.00 worth of God, please. Not enough to explode my soul or disturb my sleep, but just enough to equal a cup of warm milk or a snooze in the sunshine. I don’t want enough of Him to make me love a black man or pick beets with a migrant. I want ecstasy, not transformation; I want the warmth of the womb, not a new birth. I want a pound of the Eternal in a paper sack. I would like to buy $3.00 worth of God, please.

God communicated in scripture not just merely to inform us but to transform us.

All Scripture is Given by inspiration of God or GOD BREATHED.

Proverbs 4:20-23

20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. 21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; 22 For they are life to those who find them,

And health to all their flesh. 23 Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.

NKJV

Matthew 11:25

25 At that time Jesus answered and said, "I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes. NKJV

God has not hidden His word from us but rather He has hidden it for us.

Matt 11:25-26

25 And Jesus prayed this prayer: "O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank you for hiding the truth from those who think themselves so wise, and for revealing it to little children. 26 Yes, Father, for it pleased you to do it this way! .TLB

Gods hidden wisdom was never intended for the benefit of the heathen but for the transforming of this world through the transformation of the Believer.

The candle on the Hillside, the salt of the earth, God has called us to make the difference!

We must start living by the way of transformation.(To many look, live and act just like the world.)

The Process of Transformation:

Begins By –

(1) Acquiring Information (what kind of information are you receiving)

a. How many live today even in the church viewing the bible as just a good book of Information.

b. The Newspaper has information but not eternal life transforming truth.

(2) Processing Information

a. Through prayer and Study of the word. ( Serious Christians)

(3) Obtaining Revelation

a. (Revelation comes by the Holy Spirit Illuminating Information)

(4) Receiving Transformation. (revelation produces transformation for those who receive it when they find it.)

a. The Rich Young Ruler found it but would not receive it.

Conclusion:

Proverbs 4:20-23

20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. 21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; 22 For they are life to those who find them,

And health to all their flesh. 23 Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.

NKJV
