Transformed person is a person with the right and pure motives

Welcome, dear friends! Praise the Lord for this wonderful day He gives to us! Thanks for another opportunity to fill our hearts with His living word!As we discussed, God wants us to have power that proves our godliness. Such power is the power of holiness. We are called to become an image of Christ by living in holiness and love. Pay attention to the following verse from Bible: 
«who was declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord, …» (Romans 1:4).
 Jesus revealed to us as the Son of God in supernatural power and power of holiness. Jesus demonstrated His supernatural, divine power. That power proved its superiority above any other power by resurrecting Jesus from death. In addition, the spirit of holiness was clearly visible in Jesus life, who lived without sin, so nobody could reproach Him for anything. These two facts prove Him as the Son of God.Sooner or later all hidden becomes visible. Everything a person has kept in secret will be revealed one day, and it might happen at the most uncomfortable moment. It´s better to put away your hypocrisy and seek the holy life before God, then we will not be ashamed to look into the eyes of people and approach the Lord.So, God calls us to change. Changing and growing-up is a process, therefore, we acknowledge we are imperfect yet. I type these daily messages to you not because I am already perfect. Vice verse, I realise I am still imperfect. I am not the only one aware of it, also God, my family members and friends, also my team mates know it. But thanks God for constantly transforming and improving us when we follow Jesus.Growing-up has its flow, therefore, a growing-up person never stops doing it, but moves farther and farther forward, away from the place he was before. Such person changes, by letting God´s power and His word to renew his mind. The way a growing person thinks is different to the way he used to think before, because following Jesus he sees the light and walks in this light, not in the darkness.When somebody, very familiar with you confirms your changes, then you have changed indeed. In opposite, if only those who don´t know you well say you have changed, beware not to cheat on yourself. A human used to show his best self on public. While at home each of us shows his real face. That´s why until your home mates begin to talk about what a different person you have become, you better not say you have already changed.So in order to hold the image of holiness we can experience and test the power of holiness. Let God change us, since He can do it and He wants it to happen. He also gives us power to accomplish those changes. Become a disciple of Christ, discipline yourself to follow Jesus. Let the word of God cleanse your motives!Transformed person is a person with the right and pure motives. Transformed person serves other people because he loves them, not in order to benefit from them. It makes me sad when I meet people who minister because it gives them a certain benefits. It´s awfully hard to change a person who has such motives. Judas Iscariot who betrayed Jesus was one of this kind. For three and a half years he had stayed with Jesus, but in no way it changed him, because he had sinister motives. Judas Iscariot was greedy, money loving man. Jesus put Judas in charge with financial part of His ministry, so he had access to money and offerings. First Judas began to steal money from their pay-box, later also betrayed his Master. 
«Then Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, one of his disciples, who would betray him, said, “Why wasn’t this ointment sold for three hundred denarii, and given to the poor?” Now he said this, not because he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief, and having the money box, used to steal what was put into it». (John 12:4-6).
«Then one of the twelve, who was called Judas Iscariot, went to the chief priests, and said, “What are you willing to give me, that I should deliver him to you?” They weighed out for him thirty pieces of silver. From that time he sought opportunity to betray him». (Matthew 26:14-16).
 Sinister motives and his love to money killed Judas at the end. If your attitude to money doesn´t change, it may ruin you. Allow God to transform you and cleanse your prayers, so that you can follow the way that leads you into life instead of perdition! Be abundantly blessed!Rufus Adjiboje, pastor
