You probably have a long list of things you would like to change about yourself. But you probably get depressed when you look at it because there seems to be a whole lot more wrong than right with you. Here’s what you need to know. God wants you to change. More to the point, God wants you to be transformed. Not to make yourself acceptable to God – because you’re already unconditionally loved. But because God wants the best for you. So embrace being transformed. Embrace changing. Embrace becoming a new creation in Christ. And do it all because you’re already embraced by God’s love.
