A more evolved version doesn’t change the nature of the beast

It doesn’t matter whether we have been circumcised or not. What counts is whether we have been transformed into a new creation. May God’s peace and mercy be upon all who live by this principle; they are the new people of God. Gal. 6:15-16

The Jews thought change happened through a physical act, a ceremony, or spiritual discipline called circumcision. Do we still try to help Jesus out in the transformation process by putting ourselves “under the knife?” Instead of the approved-improved-duly-and- obediently-circumcised better version of ourselves, Christ transforms us into an entirely new kind of creature.

Lord, show me what it means to live by the principle of transformation.
