Transformation

Have you seen it?  Have you watched it in progress?  Have you seen the Word of God transform a person’s life?

There was a guy in our ministry some years back who was an athlete.  He was gifted physically.  Big guy.  He grew up in a home with a father who continually called him dummy.  He bought it.  He “knew” he wasn't smart; he was a dummy.  We met individually over the Bible and he was in Bible study with us for a couple of years.
Have you seen the Word of God transform?  Thoughts at DTTB.
One evening he had to work late and was late getting to the Bible study.  He came into the den and flopped into a bean bag chair we had in the corner.  He was tired.  For the first several minutes he simply listened as we processed the Word together.  At one point in the conversation he emerged from the bean bag leaning into the group and began to share his thoughts.  He we dead on.  His insight captivated the others in the study.

His time in the Word had awakened in him a hunger to learn and to share and reoriented the picture that he had painted of his “dumb” self.

He was transformed.

It was not anything that I did.  It was not anything more than his spending time reading and studying the Word and allowing the Holy Spirit to weld the truth of what he was finding in the Word into his heart.  I have seen it happen more times than I can count.

It makes it easy to get up in the morning.
