God Is Interested In Life Transformation Not Character Modification

Key Scripture


Romans 6:4

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

 

When Christ paid the ultimate price on the cross, he purchased for us right standing with God. we have be called blameless by the father Col 1:22. The life we live as believers is one that comes forth as a reason of what we have received in Christ. Our lives were transformed when we received the life of Christ, we entered into an era of effortless right living because it became our nature by default.

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.
