Thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness. (Romans 6:17-18 ESV)
The gospel ofJesus does not merely inform us, it reforms us. Jesus is the ultimate transformer. He changes lives. If you are not being changed to become more and more like Jesus, then you are not truly His. In areas where you still need change, you must keep trusting Jesus to continue changing you.
