Chapter-a-Day Micah 4

Metamorphosis. "On that great day," God says, "I will round up all the hurt and homeless, everyone I have bruised or banished. I will transform the battered into a company of the elite." Micah 4:6 (MSG)

Change is constant along the journey. Change is a substitution, an outside-in exchange of conditions. Change is swapping out one circumstance for another. There is a change in scenery. There is a change in location. There is a change in terrain.

Transformation is something much more intimate. Transformation is metamorphosis. It is a substantial re-forming from the inside out. Transformation is the transfiguration of the very structure and substance of being.

You can have change without transformation, but there is no transformation without change. God tells us quite plainly that He in the transformation business. He makes old things new. He makes broken things whole. He makes dirty things clean. He makes dead people live.

I don't want mere change. I want transformation. That's what this journey is about.

Some aren't so lucky....
