Are you digitally transforming? | CIO

Do you need restoration in your life? Do you long for restoration to transform your life and set your feet on a different path? If you do, you are not alone. The good news is our Lord Jesus is in the restoration business. This is why Jesus came. He came to pay the price for our sins on the cross to restore the broken relationship between us and the Father. Because that relationship has been restored, the Lord is able to call us to faith and restore us spiritually. Wow! Praise the Lord!

Biblical Transformation

I believe our Lord loves to bring restoration and transformation into our lives as we see in the following verses:

  • Ezekiel 36:26 –  And I will give you a new heart, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out your stony, stubborn heart and give you a tender, responsive heart.[1]
  • 2 Cor. 5:17 –  This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun! [2]

Water Transformed to Wine

Jesus’ mother told Jesus that the wine for the wedding banquet had run out. Would He please do something about it? Jesus mother had no idea the water would be transformed into wine.

John 2:4“Dear woman, that’s not our problem,” Jesus replied. “My time has not yet come.” But his mother told the servants, “Do whatever he tells you.” Standing nearby were six stone water jars, used for Jewish ceremonial washing. Each could hold twenty to thirty gallons. Jesus told the servants, “Fill the jars with water.” When the jars had been filled, he said, “Now dip some out, and take it to the master of ceremonies.” So the servants followed his instructions. When the master of ceremonies tasted the water that was now wine, not knowing where it had come from (though, of course, the servants knew), he called the bridegroom over.[5]

We Can Be Transformed

Figuratively we are like the empty stone water jars until Jesus interceded. Jesus filled them with water and then turned the water into wine. It took the power of Jesus to transform the water. The water could not transform itself. We cannot fill ourselves and we can not transform ourselves. It takes the power of the Lord Jesus and the work of the Holy Spirit. 

If Jesus can transform water into wine what will He be able to do in your life?
