Obedient robots

You must begin with your own life-giving lives. It’s who you are, not what you say and do, that counts. Your true being brims over into true words and deeds. Luke 6:45 (Message)

Obedience isn’t supposed to turn us into robots. Saying our lines and meeting expectations may keep us out of trouble, but it’s not genuine. Christ transforms us from the inside out so that our responses become true reflections of His nature within us. Obedience isn’t faking it until you make it, it’s submitting ourselves to transformation until we authentically become who He has made us.

Lord, transform me from the inside out.
