WHAT IS TRANSFORMED?
TRANSFORMED is a church-wide seven session Campaign that will guide and grow you by exploring what the Bible has to say about every essential area of our lives: Spiritual, Physical, Mental, Emotional, Relational, Financial and Vocational.
The key message is the only way to truly change your life is to change the way you think. That is why the key verse for this series is Romans 12:1, "Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind".
The study looks at the two key words in this statement, Conform and Transform.
What is the difference?
According to the dictionary, to conform means to "make or become the same" or "to behave in a conventional way by accepting, without questions, the customs traditions and prevailing opinions of others". In other words, to conform is to fit into somebody else's mold; it's to do things the way everybody else does.
On the other hand to transform means "Change the condition, function, nature, character or personality of something." CONFORM TRANSFORM Relates to behavior Relates to character Effect is from outside in The development is from inside out
CONFORMING has to do with BEHAVIOR.
TRANSFORMING has to do with CHARACTER.
CONFORMING is FROM THE OUTSIDE IN.
TRANSFORMING is FROM THE INSIDE OUT.
The world is shouting for our attention with answers to our relationship struggles, solutions to our financial trouble, and explanations to our search for meaning. But the world’s promises leave us empty and searching for more. God’s will is the only answer that promises to TRANSFORM our lives from the inside out.
Let's be TRANSFORMED together.
