Two words in scripture illustrate the power of the gospel better than any other Justified and Transformed In fact, every time you see the word Justified in the Bible, you should substitute it with the phrase “just as if I’s never sinned”. That’s exactly what the word means and it’s an offer only Jesus Christ can make!
When you see the word Transformed think of the word Metamorphosis. Remember that word from science? It’s used to describe a caterpillar metamorphosing into a butterfly. Metamorphosis is the Greak word (Greek bing the original language of the New Testament) that we translate Transformed. That’s the power of the gospel; it can erase your mistakes as if they’ve never happened an can change you into someone entirely new! For most of us, that’s good news!
Justified—Just as if I’d never sinned
Romans 3:21-26
Romans 5:1-9
Titus 3:3-7
Ask yourself:
Who can be justified?
How we are justified?
Who or what does the justifying?
2 Corinthians 3:17-18
Romans 12:1-2
Ask yourself:
What are we being transformed into?
Who or what is doing the transforming?
What’s the result of this transformation?
What mistakes or regrets would you like to be free from? Do you now see that you can be free from your past today? All the dirt the guild an be swept away made just as if it never happened. The question is; Do you want this?
