The Old Lamp
I have an old electric lamp that hangs over my head when I want to read at night or my typical early morning reading. Occasionally the switch will slip and the light will go out. Then I simply realign the switch and it comes back on.
Renewed mind is like realignment of the switch. The spirit is in us, the power is there we just must line it up with the truth of Father’s word. When we renew our minds we are transformed. The light of God’s word illuminates our hearts and it spills over into our actions.
Rom 12:2 And do not follow the customs of the present age, but be transformed by the entire renewal of your minds, so that you may learn by experience what God’s will is–that will which is good and beautiful and perfect.
Note —-Not part renewal, entire renewal, so we can experience it. Live it, be love for the unlovable.  Set the captive free!
2Co 3:16-18 But whenever the heart of the nation shall have returned to the Lord, the veil will be withdrawn. Now by “the Lord” is meant the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, freedom is enjoyed. And all of us, with unveiled faces, reflecting like bright mirrors the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same likeness, from one degree of radiant holiness to another, even as derived from the Lord the Spirit.
There it is TRANSFORMED. Becoming that new creations we are in Christ, with Christ in. We have a desire to glorify God, right? The only way is to be transformed by His spirit on the inside. The outside and our actions will follow suit. If our motivation is not what we can get instead of what we can give we are already off the target. Our hearts must be transformed by believing what His word says and living it in our actions. Realignment of the old switch brings the light. That alignment happens with us by making the words of God living and real in our hearts.
My heartfelt prayer for all of us is transformed. Have a great weekend, spend lots of time in the garden with Father. He will bless you and transform you.
