“Christ is risen, and our sins are forgiven! Christ is risen, and death is destroyed! Christ is risen, and life is transformed!” We rejoice in these great truths, but have we been transformed as a result of them?
Has Christ transformed your life? Has His death and resurrection “made all things new” in you (2 Cor. 5:17)? Making all things new is the act of being transformed. One might ask, “Why is transformation necessary? Must my life be transformed as a result of believing in the Risen Christ? The answer is an resounding “YES!” Why? Because it is biblically impossible for the King of Kings and Lord of Lords to enter our lives without ALL things becoming new.
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines ‘transform’ as: to change the outward form or appearance of; to change in character or condition. While ‘informed’ is defined as: having or showing knowledge of a particular subject or situation; based on an understanding of the facts of the situation. Have you been transformed by the the Risen King or simply informed?
The power, the evidence, the proof of the resurrection in our lives — it all begins as we embrace the Risen Christ and allow Him to transform our lives.
