Christians Conforming Rather Than Transforming — A.W. Tozer
“Religion today is not transforming people; rather it is being transformed by the people. It is not raising the moral level of society; it is descending to society’s own level, and congratulating itself that it has scored a victory because society is smilingly accepting its surrender.”
– A.W. Tozer (1897-1963)
Too many churches are filled with untransformed people. There is something wrong with that. Jesus calls us to Himself. He calls us to follow Him.
How is it possible to follow Him and not be transformed?
How is it possible to have become a disciple, who by definition, from the mouth of Christ, is to become an obeyer of “all that He taught” (Matthew 28:20) and remain the same?
We will never be perfect, but shouldn’t we be changed?
Shouldn’t our progress in grace be known to all (1 Timothy 4:15)?
Where is the evidence that we are truly growing in the grace and knowledge of Christ (2 Peter 3:18)?
“Lord, revive us. Purify us. Make us a family of passionate followers worthy of the sacrifice you made for us. Make us like You.”
