7 Signs of Authentic ongoing transformation


1. Getting Better

When a man is getting better, he understands more and more clearly the evil that’s left in him. When a man is getting worse, he understands his own badness less and less. C. S. Lewis

2. Obedience not Sacrifice

When a man makes obedience, not the lifting up of sacrifices, the thing to pursue – he is on the path to transformation. “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. John 14:23

3. Uses Grace as Empowerment

When a man no longer sees grace as a big cover up, he is on the path to transformation. ”Grace  is not to cover up our weaknesses but to empower us to lead a life pleasing to God.” John Bevere

4. Feeds the Spirit and not the Flesh

When a man spends all his energies not on activities to feed the flesh, but on spiritual disciplines that edify, built up, encourage and sanctify, he is on the path to transformation. ”For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.” Romans 8:13

5. Open to Correction

When a man is open to rebuke and correction, he is on the path to transformation. The heart of every man lies open to the shafts of correction if the archer can take proper aim. Oliver Goldsmith

6. Humble and Broken

When a man is not shy to walk down to the altar and bury his head between his knees and cry out for God to break him, he is on the path to transformation. ”Between the vestibule and the altar let the priests, the ministers of the Lord, weep and say, “Spare your people, O Lord.” Joel 2:17

7. Real with Friends

When a man is able to open up to trusted friends and be real about things he might be struggling with, he is on the path to transformation. Only those who are serious about coming out of darkness into light would do any such thing. Jesus said, “People loved the darkness and not the light because their works were evil.” John 3:19
