The Holy Spirit can transform us and do amazing things in our lives. However, for this to happen, we must be willing to change; some people simply want to stay the same. Another barrier to our transformation is when we perceive ourselves the wrong way. To truly be transformed, we must know who we are. Our identity is not determined by the external world, but by Jesus, who lives in us. Everything flows from the knowledge that we are the righteousness of God, by faith in Jesus Christ. Change for the better only comes when we begin seeing ourselves as God sees us.
