Why no transformation?
God gives everyone a free choice, including all those who have received Him. God does not interfere with anyone’s will. If God’s people are not willing to ‘give over’ or surrender their selfish desires of power and control to the Father’s will, there is a blockage to experiencing the transforming power of the Spirit of God. Without transformation the people of God are living in bondage to their own flesh. Sadly they are not living in the fullness of victory that Jesus died, rose and ascended on high to give.
However the good news is that God was, and is, and is to come, a relational God. God does everything out of love because God so loves. So He waits.
When a disciple of Jesus surrenders to the Father’s will, daily immersed in His presence, the Holy Spirit transforms and renews to become more like Jesus. Jesus’ character becomes their character. More of His love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Jesus said to His disciples in John 4:34 “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me…” View the Secret of Success> video to learn more about the transforming work of the Holy Spirit.
