Spiritual Transformation



So get rid of your old self, which made you live as you used to - the old self that was being destroyed by its deceitful desires. Your hearts and minds must be made completely new, and you must put on the new self, which is created in God’s likeness and reveals itself in the true life that is upright and holy.” - Ephesians 4:22-24


Everyone looks for a transformation in everything. Our old vehicle needs to be replaced with a new one, our dressing needs to align with the latest trends, need new updated gadgets, and we look for transformation in everything. Even God wants us to transform us internally or spiritually. God expects us to get rid of the old us and teaches us in Ephesians 4:22-24. God wants us to get renewed in the spirit, attaching more to holiness which God expects. God doesn’t like us to lead a hypocrisy life or masked life, whereas we want us to take control of our lives and guide us through His will. This can be attained only by allowing Jesus into our hearts by transforming us.


God made a spiritual transformation in the life of Zacchaeus. First thing Zacchaeus the tax collector did is, he took efforts to see who Jesus is. Are we trying to see Jesus more in our life? Are we growing more in Christ daily? When we make more efforts to seek his presence, and in Word of God, He places his eyes over us. Jesus saw Zacchaeus and called him when he was in the tree looking to see Jesus. Jesus was inviting him to the dinner, which changed Zacchaeus the tax collector’s life forever. It was a very short distance from where Jesus saw Zacchaeus and to his home. Bible didn’t speak about what they both spoke, but before reaching home, there was a transformation which no name can give other than the divine encounter. The encounter with God made Zacchaeus stop Jesus and said “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.” That’s the transformation which Jesus expects in our life.


In the case of Zacchaeus, this invitation fell on fertile ground. May it be the same with us, that we understand the words that Jesus is addressing to us personally—as if He were addressing us by name.


Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Thank you for caring in my life. You have a great plan and will of yours in my life. Help me to get transformed spiritually and make me more of you. Help me to dwell in you in everything I do. Amen
