A study performed about 10 years ago revealed the difficulty for change in peoples lives. Roughly 600,000 people have heart bypass surgery each year. People that have this surgery are also told that they must make some changes or they will die. They are also encourage to change their diet, to stop smoking and quit drinking, to get more exercise, and to reduce their stress. Even with this information, the study showed that 90% of the people do not change. Transformation is hard. Change is difficult in our lives. God wants your life as a believer to be continually transformed into the image of Jesus Christ. Romans 12:2 says, Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. In this message, Dr. Bruce Smilie asks the question, How Can I Know If Im a Transformer? And if I have been transformed, how will I know if I am progressing as a transformer?
