Whenever a person comes in contact with Jesus, their lives are transformed. Throughout His ministry on earth, He made the blind see, the sick well, and the lame to walk. He forgave sin and cleared guilt. He cast out demons and fed thousands with a boy’s small lunch of fish and bread. He taught the people and had compassion on them. Even in the moment of His death, the life of a hardened Roman soldier was transformed as he witnessed everything Jesus went through during the crucifixion. He saw him scourged, mocked, beaten, spit upon, nailed to a cross and watched as Jesus chose to take His final breath. This wasn’t the soldier’s first crucifixion. He probably saw criminals struggle and fight and try to get away from the tortuous cross. But Jesus was different. He willingly laid down His life for us and endured every pain so that we could have eternal life and transform us from sinners to children of God.
When was the moment that you met the Savior and your life was transformed? What parts of your life does He need to touch today? Take those areas to Him today and allow Him to transform them into His image.
Jesus, we praise you for the transforming power of your love and forgiveness that cleanses us from our sin. Show us the areas of our lives that need your touch and help us to surrender them to You so that we can be more and more like You every day.
