Church of the unchained Dr. Tony Evans, his spiritual transformation starts willing to face the true shall celebrating.
This is the alternative Dr. Tony have authored speaker, senior pastor of Oakland Bible Fellowship in Dallas Texas and president of the alternative, facing up to our faults is never easy, but today Dr. Evans explains how that important first stab can lead to dramatic exciting changes driven by God's power instead of willpower.
Let's join him there is nothing that does not need improving. After all you all that you probably don't even need to be here this morning that you're probably ready for heaven right now all of us are in need of some change. The Scripture did believe in second Corinthians 3. In discussing the role of the Holy Spirit.
The term Spirit comes up a number of times the for example, in verse three made manifest that you are a letter of Christ, cared for by us, written but with the spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts will the ministry of the spirit will to be even more with glory. Corinthians about any tells the nation of your life and therefore our lives happen because the what you call what was written on the stone because of the work, the transforming work of the Holy Spirit use a reference point. Of course the two closing verses in chapter 3 now the Lord of the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord's report spirit, three times in two verses one as though he says in verse 18, all into the same image.
Spiritual transformation is to become Jesus Christ and our conduct to and and of Jesus Christ, you are not being formed when you are now saying what Jesus would say you all when you're not doing what Jesus would do that since the being transformed God's goal out of this transformation takes place by the spirit the lawn of the spirit of the Lord is with all the same to glory, just the spirit. What is Jesus Christ going transforming something different that need to be transforming your life the way the Lord is going to do what his spirit which dwells inside of every believer you commit to the Bible to be unchanged. You can go to church to be unchanged.
You can say the unchanging hand lotion and the unchanged. Why because biblical information is important not enough. You got to get a change of heart, the veil must be removed from the heart. What we know, the hardest of the quickest the pump that sends life throughout the body. What is exactly what is spiritually the heart is the center of the soul that sends out the life of God to the rest of your soul and you must understand the reason that you do what you do with your body is because of your soul.
Your problem is not your body. Your body only laments what the soul dictates your problem.
Whatever is well and I live does not exist without you say what you say because you have a skewed, you do what you do because you have a skewed so it is slow when the problem exist when God saves you his angels so that must be correct by the spirit of life and just as is the proper functioning of your body. The Bible take the same phrase and use it for your soul. Your soul and it's cool on a piece of life to your soul and it comes out like to go so the spirit probably do that but we all verse 18, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord are being treated and that one line tells you everything you need to know about being transformed but were afraid to ask.
When you read my Bible preach. God says it like you mentioned about how to approach the Bible.
What are you hearing a preacher preach it on your reading it will create a reflection, what things are you looking at me, looking at me with emceeing me seeing me. Thanks my face and look at something else telling me what I look like because we are not without a written action to determine how we really look so you want to talk about your all okay that's without a reflection for the men were to tell you truth will come before God's word you're looking at is God's word and you will show me as you see me that's why you must come with unveiled to tell us the truth is we won't like what it tells us God's word. When you to tell you what you like to tell you you are selfish to tell you about the evil actions that are nothing but the God word mail. Tell me what you look like, what is going to come with unveiled, but when you come with your place unveiled what you looking for in the glory of you expose me to me, but exposing me to me. Please expose me because when you all to me tells me what I'm supposed to look like when you all to me showing me what God wants this now giving God to show you what you might not give the person next to you, God shall, and show you. He says we are transformed, God will leave by spirit begin to reflect or bring about the change in your life thinking show that's why James says when you come to God's word.
Be quick, slow to speak and slow when you come to God's word. 118 and when you come to God's word. Be quick. Don't come talking, don't come justified in calling listening equipment here long after you heard me call this loan and you could you wiggle like when I show you so get mad real slow as compared to showing you that you will be such That you will get all my life get mad when you come true. You know what a good man when you approach the Bible era, there will be a lot of ugly because you are approaching a perfect show up Deborah's dream – every running show up was also going show you the glory of God.
And when you see the glory of God. After God showed you you God says it is built into the to begin the transformation to guess what you have to try to change the mirror has a change component when you approach the matter with unveiled face, my husband to change my husband to be a different person that maybe God's word and ask you what's wrong with me and take the mail off was wrong with me. Show me your glory yeah but right now must come with unveiled says and you are being transformed.
