“God on the other hand wants us to continue working on transformation throughout our lives (Leviticus 11:44, Matthew 5:48, Matthew 5-7, Hebrews 12, Romans 12:1-2). Not so we can earn salvation, but so we can better reflect His nature to a dying world. So we can love others with a sacrificial love. And so we can love Him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.”
“In a sense, the renewing of the mind is like a counseling session with the One who loves you better than you could ever imagine being loved. It’s an incredible time of intimate fellowship, but it’s also a time of conviction. It often brings me to my knees in repentance as I become aware of my sin.”
