David Jeremiah daily devotionals June 27 2022 :
For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Recommended Reading: Psalm 19:7-11
The most familiar example of metamorphosis in nature is the butterfly. An adult female lays an egg on a plant; the egg hatches and reveals a larva which feeds on the host plant, becoming a caterpillar; the caterpillar spins a cocoon around itself; the caterpillar changes into a butterfly in the cocoon and emerges.
Metamorphosis comes from Greek metamorphosis (transformation): meta means “after,” while morphe means “form.” Paul uses this word in Romans 12:2: “And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed [metamorphoo] by the renewing of your mind.” It is God’s intent that His children be transformed, or changed, from carnal people to spiritual people. And that happens when we focus on the living Word of God and allow the Holy Spirit to apply it to our life. The Bible is the key to the transformation of the mind.
Are you changing into the image of Christ (Romans 8:29)? That change correlates directly with the amount of attention you give to the Word of God.
The end for which God instructs the mind is that he might transform the life.
Albert N. Martin.
