Segment 1: Our justification in Christ is the foundation for our Christian life, so if we are to live the Christian life as God desires, we need to have a proper understanding of how God justifies us. That is, he does not make us righteous in ourselves; rather, He transfers us into Christ, so that Christ Himself becomes our righteousness. Also, we consider further some examples of transformation, both from nature and from the Bible.
Segment 2: A further consideration of the Greek word for “transformation,” which is metamorphoō, and also of its root word, morphoō. The later in its noun form is only used of Christ Himself, but as a verb it is used in regards to the believers, in Galatians 4:19, when Paul states that “My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you.” This is “transformation,” for Christ to be formed in the believers; it was the apostle’s burden, and it should be ours as well (cf. Col. 1:24-29 and Ephesians 3:14-19.
Segment 3: A discussion with Brother Mark Jordon, where he shares on the life of Jacob, who is the outstanding example in the Old Testament of one who was transformed by God’s work in his life.
