From the Beginning Afterward

2 Corinthians 3:18 ESV

Ephesians 4:21b-24 ESV

Romans 12-2 ESV

From the Beginning

When I prayed about writing the series, From the Beginning, I thought it would be a fairly short series. I made a list of things that God IS.

As I studied scripture and dug into the text, I discovered that at almost every turn scripture described WHO God IS and how we relate to that.

As a result, the list grew…

Now, I feel like this series just scratched the surface when we think about who God is to us and how God changes us.

Ephesians 4:21b-24 says, “the truth is in Jesus, to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.”

In this series we studied:

God is Beautiful

God Delivers

God is the Word

God is Our Shield

God is Omnipotent

God is Shepherd

God is Omnipresent

God is Holy

God is Wise

God is Sovereign

God is Faithful

God is Unsearchable

God is Just

God is Healer

God is Good

God is Merciful

God is Omniscient

God is Gracious

God is Trustworthy

God is Love

God is Provider

God is Our Righteousness

God is the Vine

God is the Way, the Truth, the Life

God is the Resurrection

God is Light

God is the Bread of Life

God is the Door

God is Alpha and Omega

God is Enduring

God is our Refuge

I loved studying about who God is based on scripture, but even more I found that as I connected to the text, I grew. Thinking about who God IS to me, changed me.

2 Corinthians 3:18 says, “And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.”

Once I realized how much it changed me, I started praying that God would change me. I prayed that same prayer for you.

The Apostle Paul wrote in Romans 12:2, “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”

As we consider how God changes us, I pray that you will continue to let God change you in the days, weeks, and months ahead.

Today’s Spiritual Practice is: Consider HOW God changes you.

Contemplate how reading scripture, praying, and trusting God changes you.

In God, Deborah
