"Stagnation or Transformation"
Ephesians 2:22 “And in Him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit.” (NIV)
Is Jesus building you into a dwelling where God lives and flourishes or does your God occasionally come out of hiding to attend church with you? Is God the Lord of your life, so that your life with Him is constantly experiencing increasing portions of Him? “Stagnation or Transformation” shares a vital principle for making this happen.
Becoming God’s dwelling became a powerful reality in my life when I started to not just hear God and make applications, but when I allowed God to change me and use me. God made little progress in this area until 2 Corinthians 4:10-12 became a living reality in my life: “We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that His life may be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.”
