Favorite Bible verse(s):
“He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it.” Matthew 10:39 (NKJV)

John chapter 2 Jesus’ First Miracle
Jesus shows us that our task is to follow the instruction, it is God who tranforms.

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:1-2 (NKJV)
