Life in the Spirit – Teaching 1
Transformation
James 1:22-25 … But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.
Biblical teaching should result in transformation, not mere education. Jesus is not looking just for listeners, but for followers. Following God’s will is the good, right and proper thing to do. God guides us to study his word, to listen to the inner voice that is trying to convict us of sin and move us toward His holy will, and submit to it in the power of the Holy Spirit. And since God enabled us to do all of this, He will get all the credit for the results.
