God is the Power of the Transformed Life (Poem)

Updated on September 18, 2013

The premise, and foundation

For the transformed life,

Is none other than,

The Lord Jesus Christ, that

Through us His reflection

Would prevail,

Not allowing the flesh

This purpose to derail,

We must use the power

The Spirit of God provides,

Keep the faith

No matter what betides,

Present our bodies

A living sacrifice,

Holy, and acceptable unto God,

This will suffice,

This is the Word of God’s instruction

For our blood wrought lives,

Be not conformed to this world

Is the point that it drives,

Meaning, don’t let the world system

Dictate to you, but

Be transformed in everything

That you think and do,

The soul is still processing, and

Absorbing God’s holy will,

In order that these changes

We can successfully fulfill,

The Word of God has to be

Our final authority,

Or else the manifestations of change

Will not be a personal reality,

Work out your own salvation

With fear, and reverence too,

Be encouraged, and seek all, that

You need to take you through,

Study the Word!

It will provide the success you need,

Eat the whole roll, and

Prove you will succeed,

Be conformed into

The Imago Dei,

In other words, the image of God

Is the chosen way,

The power of the transformed life

Is part of redemption's story,

It is Christ in us the hope of glory,

Greater is He who is in us,

Than all that the world could offer, as just

The transformed life is a continuous process, and

All of the power it entails comes from God.

Inspired by: Romans 12
