Inner Transformation will take the whole of our earthly life no matter how long we live.
Char-Lee our pure white Maltese/shzu terrier jumped into a muddy hole. Loving hands lifted her out, but she looked now like a black scruff ball of fluff.
Again, loving hands washed, trimmed and restored her outward appearance to what she ‘looked’ like before. But inside she remains a little curious dog. Loving discipline will modify her behaviour, but nothing will transform her inherent doggy nature.
We who were created by God in His Image have a different road to travel. LOVE REACHED DOWN and took us our of this world’s societal mire and by acceptance of His Plan for our lives, now have a wonderful opportunity to live triumphantly in and through whatever circumstances may arise.
We have the responsibility to care for our outward in every way. The physical body by health care actions and behaviour etc, our minds by stimulation in whatever way most satisfies but never leads us away from what is pure and of good report in His Eyes.
Jesus came as God’s Representative to die as a substitute human so all who accept Him and follow Him are ‘saved’ for eternity.
But this is where the real journey of a human ‘born again’ into God’s Kingdom really begins.
There is nothing we can DO. No program we can learn to make it happen
God the Holy Spirit came to the Earth to dwell forever until redemption and judgment Day comes for all humankind.
He now begins the INNER TRANSFORMATION of all who live with Him, into the image of the Divine. He transforms minds, develops a hunger for the written WORD and a heart passion to tell others about the wonder of life for all stages of life for those who have faith and will believe in the SAVIOUR.
Have a beautiful day today.
Live it and like me know without ongoing repentance and loving forgiveness transformation of my human nature will never be completed.
I often think I will be repenting even as I journey HOME with my best Heavenly friend.
Martin Luther said on his death bed, “We are beggars, this is true.”
But what a Lord we have who loves to save beggars like us.

I loved this little bit, Faye: “We have the responsibility to care for our outward in every way. The physical body by health care actions and behaviour etc, our minds by stimulation in whatever way most satisfies but never leads us away from what is pure and of good report in His Eyes.” Hugs to you for the kind reminder.💕
