Did you know God has already given you everything you need? All that you need to succeed and prosper is already yours1 2 Peter 1:3 says: “His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness…”

God works in us the desire and ability to do what pleases Him (Phil 2:13). All we need to do is work it out. But how do we do that? Romans 12:2 says: “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

That word transformed is translated from the Greek word metamorphoō. That is where we get our English word metamorphous from. Metamorphous is a process of radical transformation, like when a caterpillar is changed into a butterfly.

The caterpillar is a bit of a hideous creepy crawly. But whatever is needed for the caterpillar to become a beautiful, majestic, flying butterfly is already on the inside of it. God has worked in the caterpillar the desire and ability to be a butterfly; the caterpillar just needs to work it out. It does this by going through a radical transformation process.

In the same way, everything that you need to be who God has made you to be is already on the inside of you. Jesus Christ is living in you! That is the mystery of the Gospel (Colossians 1:27). You just need to go through a process of transformation. This happens as you simply renew your mind by looking into the Word of God at who you are in Christ, what you can do in Christ and what you have in Christ.
