In Christ We Are Transformed

"But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord." (1 Corinthians 1:30-31)

We all love to visit scenic spots and click some good pictures. It revives our mind and when we see creation and its majesty around us, we are excited. Only if we take time to go there and be in that environment can we really cherish those moments. When we think about God and His work in our lives, we can do nothing else other than to worship. The creation around us declares the powerful and glorious nature of God. The way in which He transforms a person is much more a wonder. Like how the chaotic earth in the beginning was transformed to be a masterpiece of His creation, sinful human beings are clothed in His righteousness. When we think of our own sins and failures, we should immediately look onto the wisdom of God. There is no other wise pursuit other than looking onto the wisdom of God who is our Lord Jesus Christ. He is made unto us wisdom and righteousness.

When all of mankind fell short of the glory of God, we see the Lord Jesus Christ who is made unto us wisdom, righteousness and sanctification and redemption. Thus it should be our aim to glory in the Lord for every grace that we receive from Him. We cannot boast of anything we do in the presence of God. It's all His work and He receives all the glory, honor and praise. When we believe in the Lord Jesus , God sees us through the Lord Jesus and His sacrifice. We are no more sin stained and corrupt, but we experience God's wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption as we gaze and abide in the Lord Jesus. Never come out of Him. Never let the world detach you from your godly affections in Christ. Hallelujah! Let's glory in the Lord and on His greatness.
