Transformation In Progress

Trust that a Great Love is leading you to new life.

Hebrews 2:18

Because he himself was tested through what he suffered, he is able to help those who are being tested.

The world is full of egos vying for control, power and prestige.

The question is: Do we notice how our own egos are doing the same?

When we take notice of our own egos…they will start to diminish. This “dying” to our false selves gives our true selves the opportunity to slowly emerge. Jesus shows us the way. He healed and loved others while working tirelessly for justice and equality for all without a trace of egotism. He carried out his calling even when he was soundly rejectedpersecuted and hung on a cross.

It appeared to be a total defeat.

Yet in the face of his impending execution he said to God, “Not my will but yours be done” (Luke 22:42). Jesus gave us a radical example of how to accept what “is”.

He showed us how to trust that all struggles and all sufferings eventually lead to new life.

The Loving-Source-of-all promises to “make all things new” (Revelation 21:5).

That includes you!
