POSITIVE TRANSFORMATION



THEME: POSITIVE TRANSFORMATION.

  


MEMORISE:

And the Spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man. 1 Samuel 10:6


READ: Romans 12:1-2

1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.


2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.


MESSAGE:

The Almighty God has the power to transform anyone or anything either positively or negatively. For example, the Lord, at the beginning of creation transformed ordinary dust into the raw material He used to create man in His image (Genesis 2:7). That is a positive transformation. God however also transformed King Nebuchadnezzar from man into beast (Daniel 4). This is a negative transformation and I pray such will never be your portion in Jesus’ name.


The story behind the memory verse of today reveals divine transformation in the life of the king of Israel- King Saul. Not only was Saul anointed as king, he also started to prophesy. This brought about the popular saying in Israel “Is Saul also among the prophets?” (1 Samuel 10:12).


The Bible says:

“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17


1 Peter 2:9 also says:

“But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light;”


Beloved, do you desire a positive divine transformation? If so, you need to take drastic measures by presenting your body to God as a living sacrifice and ensuring that you do not conform to the standard of the world (Romans 12:1-2).

Divine transformation turns an enemy of God to a friend of the same God. It instantly turns sinners to saints. However, there is only one Person who can make this happen: Jesus Christ is His name and His Blood cleanses us from all sin (1 John 1:7).


To experience a positive divine transformation, old things must pass away and the fellow must now live according to the principles of the Kingdom of God, may the transformational power of the Almighty God come upon you as you pray and earnestly long for it today, in Jesus’ name. the good news is that you can be transformed, no matter how terribly sinful or wicked you may have been in the past. All you need is to accept God’s invitation (Isaiah 1:18) and your life will never remain the same. 


PRAYER POINT:

Father, please let Your power cause a positive transformation in my life today, in Jesus’ name.


BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2Ecclesiates 1-5.

HYMN 29: WHAT CAN WASH AWAY MY STAIN.

1. What can wash away my sin?

Nothing but the blood of Jesus;

What can make me whole again?

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.


o Refrain:

Oh! precious is the flow

That makes me white as snow;

No other fount I know,

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.


2. For my pardon, this I see,

Nothing but the blood of Jesus;

For my cleansing this my plea,

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.


3. Nothing can for sin atone,

Nothing but the blood of Jesus;

Naught of good that I have done,

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.


4. This is all my hope and peace,

Nothing but the blood of Jesus;

This is all my righteousness,

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.


5. Now by this I’ll overcome—

Nothing but the blood of Jesus;

Now by this I’ll reach my home—

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.


6. Glory! Glory! This I sing—

Nothing but the blood of Jesus,

All my praise for this I bring—

Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
