50 Days of Transformation - Spiritual Health

God loves you just the way you are.  He loves you unconditionally.  But he loves you too much to let you stay that way.  So he wants to help you grow.  He wants to help you become more like his Son.
Transformation changes us from emptiness to fullness; from defeat to victory; from failure to success; from insecurity to boldness and from cowardice to courage.
Premise: The further away you get from God the more trouble you’re going to have in your life. 
Promise: The closer I get to God, the more my life is going to be transformed. 
 The Pathway to Spiritual Defeat
#1 The journey begins with self-centeredness.
#2 The world will use you and take severything you have.
#3 The world will reduce your value and values.
#4 The world will leave you to die.
The Pathway Back To Spiritual Transformation

      I.         Get Fed Up With My Life

  • Nothing is going to happen in your life until you first get dissatisfied with the way you are.
  • The gift from the father he wasted was a grace gift.
  • The abuse of grace can destroy the life of a believer.
  • If we ignore God's knocking long enough, He steps back and lets Satan knock the door down.   
  1. Own Up To My Sin  Luke 15:17-18 NLT
  • When he finally came to his senses signifies that he had been living a delusion.
  • When there is no one else to blame you have finally accepted responsibility. 
  • If there is anything that will drive you to God it is sin when it has done its work. 

Make A Habit Of Regular Spiritual Checkups. 2 Corinthians 13:5 MSG 

  1. Offer Up Myself  Romans 12:1 NIV
  • When your heart moves from self-centeredness to God-centeredness, that is the beginning of transformation.
  • Conformation to God's precepts and principles is not God's transformation of our heart by His Spirit. 
  • God restores us by grace and graces us with grace (the power and resource to do His will) when we come to Him.
  1. Lift Up My Praise  Luke 15:23-24 NIV
