The Transformation

8 11 2007

Excerpt form my daily devotional from a couple of days ago. I thought it was excellent.

“The incarnation of the Father’s freedom calls us beyond admiration to transformation. A recent convert to Jesus was approached by an unbelieving friend: “So you have been converted to Christ?”
“Yes.”
“Then you must know a great deal about him. Tell me, what country was he born in?”
“I don’t know.”
“What was his age when he died?”
“I don’t know.”
“You certainly know very little for a man who claims to be converted to Christ.””You are right. I am ashamed at how little I know about him. But this much I know: Three years ago I was a drunkard. I was in debt. My family was falling to pieces; they dreaded the sight of me. But now I have given up drink We are out of debt. Ours is a happy home. My children eagerly await my return home each evening. All this Christ has done for me. This much I know of Christ!”

“To know is to be transformed by what one knows.”
