Transformers
For I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need
(Philippians 4 verse 13)


For me to become a transformer I need to undergo three phases of transform:


1. Transforming
2. Transformed
3. Transformer


In each of these I will let the Lord tell you more and confirm the processes. Father open our hearts to hear you voice and receive your message today.


1.Transforming
1 Peter 2 verse 2 - 4: Cry out for this nourishment as a baby cries out for milk, now that you have tasted the Lord's kindness. Come to Christ who is the living cornerstone of God's temple.
Romans 12 verse 2: Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.
Ephesians 4 verse 17: With the Lord's authority let me say this: Live no longer as the ungodly do, the are hopelessly confused.
Romans 10 verse 9: For if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is the Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Romans 3 verse 22: We are made right in God's sight when we trust in Jesus Christ to take away our sins.
James 1 verse 21: So get rid of the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly accept the message God has planted in your hearts, for it is strong enough to save your souls.
Titus 3 verse 7: He declared us not guilty because of His great kindness. And now we know that we will inherit eternal life.


2. Transformed
1 Peter 2 verse 10: Once you were not a people, now you are the people of God. Once you have received none of God's mercy; now you have received His mercy.
1 Peter 1 verse 14: Obey God because you are His children. Don't slip back into your old ways of doing evil; you didn't know any better then.
James 4 verse 7: So humble yourselves before God. Resist the Devil and he will flee from you.
Hebrews 12 verse 25: See to it that you obey God, the one who is speaking to you.
Hebrews 12 verse 14: Try to live in peace with everyone, and seek to live a clean and holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the Lord.
Hebrews 2 verse 1: So we must listen very carefully to the truth we have heard, or we may drift away from it.
2 Timothy 2 verse 4: And as Christ's soldier, do not let yourself get tied up in the affairs of this life, for then you cannot satisfy the one who has enlisted you in His army.
1 Timothy 5 verse 8: Physical exercise has some value, but spiritual exercise is much more important, for it promises a reward in both this life and the next.
1 Thessalonian 5 verse 9 - 10: For God decided to save us through our Lord Jesus Christ, not to pour out His anger on us. He died for us so that we can live with Him forever, whether we are dead or alive at the time of His return.
Philippians 1 verse 29: For you have been given not only the privilege of trusting in Christ but also the privilege of suffering for Him.
Ephesians 2 verse 8 - 10: God saved you by His special favor when you believed. And you can't take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so that we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.
Galatians 5 verse 16: So I advise you to live according to your new life in the holy spirit. Then you won't be doing what your sinful nature craves.




3. Transformers
Colossians  3 verse 16: Let the words of Christ, in all their richness, live in your hearts and make you wise. Use His words to teach and council each other. Sing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs to God with thankful hearts. And whatever you do or say, let it be a representative of the Lord Jesus, all the while giving thanks through Him to God the father.
Ephesians 6 verse 10: A final word: Be strong with Lord's mighty power.
2 Corinthians 5 verse 20 - 21: We are Christ's ambassadors, and God is using us to speak to you, as though Christ himself were here pleading with you, "Be reconciled to God!". For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.
1 Peter 3 verse 8: Finally, all of you should be of one mind, full of sympathy toward each other, loving one another with tender hearts and humble minds.
Matthew 28 verse 18 - 20: Jesus came and told His disciples, "I have been given complete authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age."


And then lastly I would like to give you a glance at who God is from the words of Jeremiah.
Jeremiah 51 verse 15 - 19:


He made the earth by His power,
and He preserves it by His wisdom.
He has stretched out the heavens 
by His understanding.
When He speaks, there is thunder in the heavens.
He causes the clouds to rise over the earth.
He sends the lightning with the rain
and releases the wind from His storehouses.
Compared to Him all people are foolish
and have no knowledge at all!
They make idols, but the idols will disgrace their makers,
for they are frauds.
They have no life or power in them.
Idols are worthless, they are lies!
The time is coming when they will all be destroyed.
But the God of Israel is no idol!
He is the creator of everything that exists,
including His people, His own special possession.
The Lord Almighty is His name!
