Spiritual transformation and growth is the subject of many passages of Scripture. Rom. 12:1-2 speaks of transformation as a metamorphosis. This change happens as the mind is renewed and results in a person being able to test and approve the will of God and reach the goal for which they were created. According to Luke 9:23-26, the Christian life is rooted in surrender to Jesus Christ and a willingness to suffer in order to do what pleases Christ. II Cor. 3:18 speaks of transformation as beholding the face of Christ in order to be changed into Christ’s likeness.
