3 Misconceptions about Transformation - A Guest Post By Heath Davis
The good news is that transformation is possible and more than a pipe-dream. But, there are a few misconceptions that I have noticed that keep people from experiencing all that God wants for their lives. And, over the next few days I'd like to address three specific misconceptions that people have about transformation in the way of Jesus.
Misconception #1 “The right knowledge and information will transform my life and make me more like Christ”.
Misconception #2 “Positive, ‘feel good’ experiences will transform my life and make me more like Christ.
Misconception #3 “Trying real hard will produce spiritual transformation."
Please check out Heath's Blog:
In summary of the posts on 3 misconceptions about transformation, let me recommend to you a book written by James Bryan Smith. It is called "The Good and Beautiful God" and is a highly practical book dedicated to how transformation takes place in our everyday lives. It incorporates the role of experiential learning, pain and the spiritual disciplines (the three topics I've discussed the last three days) in our transformation. I highly recommend that you pick it up.
