It takes a purposeful study of God’s Word to truly come to know Him in all that He is. He is the Creator of sunsets and of hurricanes. He is the Creator of majestic mountains and of tidal waves. He is Sovereign, Holy, God Almighty, Creator, Redeemer, most loving and most terrifying. Our personal, spiritual, and professional identity is not determined by what we have done or will do. What we do is determined by our identity; who we are and by the beliefs we hold dear of ourselves and others. Our position and identity in Christ is not just our personal truth; rather it is the foundation for living and growing in Christ. God challenges us to be “an epistle…known and read by all men.” (Nelson, 1985) It is through clear understanding of the facts, principles, and concepts presented in God’s Word that one can manifest the person God declares him to be. Forever Transformed is written in poetic form, or in biblical terms; a Psalm. It is a religious pilgrimage; a spiritual awakening, as God delivers us from darkness into the light.
The purposeful choice to pursue creative thought as we seek greater understanding of ourselves, our associations, and our world is foundational to the development and ultimately, the establishment of our personal values and ethics. Judicious, strategic thought processes enable individuals to realize the qualities within themselves as well as areas that need eradication or improvement.
