Sometimes I look back at life and think, "What was I thinking!?"
As a young Christian, I can remember wanting to be good and do good and represent God well. But I never wanted to be CHANGED. I didn't see the need for it. Sure, I'd think, "I shouldn't have gossiped so much today. I'll try to do better tomorrow." But I didn't feel any lack of goodness or godliness in my heart. WHAT WAS I THINKING!?!
Oh, I am so ready for God to transform me!!! I don't want to "do better" ... I want Jesus to pull me closer to Him. I want to live out that verse in 2 Corinthians that says that as we gaze at God's glory, we are transformed into being more & more like Him. There is nothing like the power of gazing at the beauty of who God is.
Have you gazed at God today? Have you meditated on Scripture, or allowed your heart to soar at the words of a worship song on the radio? Have you considered with awe His creation? Nothing changes us into His image like looking at Him.
