How you can experience a complete transformation

May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. - 1 Thessalonians 5:23

London businessman Lindsay Clegg told the story of a warehouse property he was selling. The building had been empty for months and needed repairs. Vandals had damaged the doors, smashed the windows, and strewn trash around the interior.

As he showed a prospective buyer the property, Clegg took pains to say that he would replace the broken windows, bring in a crew to correct any structural damage, and clean out all of the garbage.

“Forget about the repairs,” the buyer said. “When I buy this place, I’m going to build something completely different. I don’t want the building; I want the site!”

Apart from the saving grace of Jesus Christ, our efforts to improve our own lives are as trivial as tidying up a warehouse that’s slated for the wrecking ball. You see, when you trust in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, the old life is over and the new life takes over (2 Corinthians 5:17).

When you come to Christ, you give God the site and allow Him to begin His renovating work in your life. So instead of trying to clean up your own life before you trust Jesus, place your faith in Him today because that’s where the remodeling begins!

Prayer Challenge

Pray and tell God that you are giving Him your life. Ask Him to renovate you from top to bottom and transform your life in every way!
