A Picture of Spiritual Transformation
  • 14 But as for you, continue in what you have
    learned and firmly believed, knowing those from
    whom you learned, 15 and that from childhood you
    have known the sacred Scriptures, which are able
    to instruct you for salvation through faith in
    Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is inspired by God
    and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for
    correcting, for training in righteousness, 17 so
    that the man of God may be complete, equipped for
    every good work.
  • 2 Timothy 314-17 (HCSB)

    another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to
    make it.

James 122-25 (HCSB)
  • But be doers of the word and not hearers only,
    deceiving yourselves. 23 Because if anyone is a
    hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a
    man looking at his own face in a mirror 24 for
    he looks at himself, goes away, and right away
    forgets what kind of man he was. 25 But the one
    who looks intently into the perfect law of
    freedom and perseveres in it, and is not a
    forgetful hearer but a doer who actsthis person
    will be blessed in what he does.
