And have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, (Col. 3:10 NKJ)
Spiritual metamorphosis is the transformation of the believer from one level of glory to another until he becomes a complete reflection of the fullness of Jesus Christ.
The scripture teaches us that the path of the righteous, for you the child of God, is like the early morning sun that continues to shine brighter and brighter (Prov. 4:18.) That is how God has designed your life to shine.
There is, of necessity, a spiritual metamorphosis required for every one of us. We begin our Christian walk with different baggage, but all move towards the same goal of Christlike-ness. Some begin their walk with more weights and burdens than others, but there is enough grace for us all to move towards the goal no matter how we started.
A child who was raised morally upright in a religious home, and who gets saved, has less to deal with than one who is off the streets with drugs and all sorts of sins. Yet both need Jesus. Both need to be transformed through spiritual metamorphosis.
Spiritual metamorphosis comes through in just one way, and that is through God’s Word. The Spirit of God transforms you as you feed on the Word.
This transformation is not spontaneous for every believer. It needs to be triggered. We can spend fifty years in the faith and not be transformed. In fact, we can have leadership positions in Church but remain the same old person for years. Longevity in the faith has nothing to do with it.
Our attitude and openness towards allowing our lives to be molded by the Word through the Spirit, therefore allowing renewal of our minds, is the key. Be proactive, be intentional, and move purposefully from one level of glory to another.
A key to true and lasting spiritual metamorphosis is meditating constantly on the Word. Take a moment to meditate on the main verse above.
