There are seasons of transformation and this thought is only one of many. If God looks at our heart, then being loyal and faithful matters and God will forgive our sin. The promise that comes with obedience is that nothing evil will happen to you. In fact, when you please God watch your enemies turn into friends.
When you feel the need for God’s intervention in your life, it is then and only then you come to understand your need of God. The moment you are born again, your sins are forgiven and you have a relationship with God. You are spiritually renewed. Old things pass away. A spiritual transformation takes place. You are a new creature in Christ. You are no longer who you used to be. Be the person God created you to be.
We are all being “transformed” into the image of Jesus from “glory to glory”. (2nd Corinthians 3:18)
