#BeTransformed is Mennonite Church USA’s call for individuals and congregations to fully live into our Renewed Commitments to follow Jesus, witness to God’s peace and experience transformation.
So, if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new! 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NRSV)
I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. The wild animals will honor me, the jackals and the ostriches; for I give water in the wilderness, rivers in the desert, to give drink to my chosen people, the people whom I formed for myself so that they might declare my praise. Isaiah 43:19-21 (NRSV)
It is our prayer that, through the transformative power of the Holy Spirit, we can be symbols of hope, restoration and renewal in our communities.
We encourage you to reflect on God’s transformative power.
- How has your relationship with Jesus transformed your life?
- Where do you see the Holy Spirit’s transformative power in your church, community and/or world?
- Where do you find hope in transformation?
- What scriptures or worship songs best express God’s transformative power?
