The Authority of a Transformed Life

Theology doesn’t matter much to those who observe genuine transformation.  In John Chapter 9 Jesus heals a man born blind.  His neighbors immediately begin to talk about it.

Therefore the neighbors and those who previously had seen that he was blind said, “Is not this he who sat and begged?”

Some said, “This is he.” Others said, “He is like him.”

He said, “I am he.”

Therefore they said to him, “How were your eyes opened?”

He answered and said, “A Man called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes and said to me, ‘Go to the pool of Siloam and wash.’ So I went and washed, and I received sight.”     – John 9:8-11

When Jesus makes big and obvious changes in us, the world can’t help but notice.  While a pathetic Christian life makes for a pathetic Christian witness, a transformed life wields remarkable authority.  Once the changes are made all we need to do is give Him the glory for the great things He has done. 

Let’s allow Him to do all that He wants to within us and give the world something to notice as we change.
