Thoughts for Today
Consider this …
As the believer contemplates Jesus through prayer and the reading of the Word, the Spirit of the Lord changes (Greek, metamorphoumetha, cf. English, metamorphosis) him into the likeness and appearance he beholds. He is transformed (Romans 12:2 where the same Greek verb appears) into that image from one glorious level to another. The complete likeness to Jesus will come when he sees Him face-to-face (1 John 3:2). (Ralph W. Harris, Stanley M. Horton, and Gayle Garrity Seaver. /The Complete Biblical Library—Romans, Corinthians. Springfield, Missouri: World Library Press, 1989, page 535)
Father, as I focus on you, I pray you will transform the way I think about you, about others, and about myself. Help me let go of the mask and trust only in you. In Jesus' name . . .
These thoughts were drawn from …
Free to Grow: Overcoming Setbacks and Disappointments by Jimmy Ray Lee, D.Min. The purpose of this group study is to help people overcome disappointments and setbacks that have arrested or are presently hindering their emotional and spiritual development. The group study will help participants understand how to be set free so that they can grow and become all that God has designed them to be. Note: This curriculum was written especially for small groups and we encourage people to use it that way. However, it can also be used effectively as a personal study for individuals or couples.
