On being changed

There is an important lesson to be learned about what the Bible reveals. It is the temptation to see and judge others with the word, instead of applying what we learn to our own lives first. It is too easy to get caught up in our opinions of what we think others ought to do with the truths of Scripture, and completely miss the opportunity for the word to change our own lives first. How does the scripture work as a mirror?

The word shows us the image of Christ so that we will measure our character and conduct by His standards, and then allow God to shape us more and more into His image. When we allow ourselves to be changed by God’s word, we will end up being of more help to others than if we spent our time trying to correct them.

This process brings us fully into the “law of liberty”, a life lived and shaped under the power of God’s amazing grace and then used to help others!

  1. God calls us to live by moral codes or laws of Christ?? Read Galatians 5/Romans 8 after context of Romans 7.
