God Is Interested In Life Transformation Not Character Modification
2Cor 3:18 made us realize that we, beholding Christ transforms us from the inside by his grace. A lot of Christians focus on what they feel they can do for themselves, self-righteousness comes up and people try to be holy by character modification. God is not interested in character modification; he is interested in life transformation. The life you received when you accepted Christ. He wants you to accept the life and live in it.
Character modification is like cutting down all the fruits of a tree because you don’t want the tree to bear fruits. That is nothing but a waste of time and effort because in no time the tree will produce fruits and all your effort becomes futile. This scenario shows us that man’s actions are controlled by his nature and not the other way round. Let the life of Christ find expression in you, all the good works without Christ is nothing but a waste of time. Righteousness is a noun not a verb, it’s a nature not an action. You have been righteous, you are Gods righteousness; take time to renew your mind by the word to be more aware of who you are and watch things fall in place.
