10 Sure Ways to Become Transformed by the Holy Spirit

To be transformed by the Holy Spirit means a supernatural configuration of your body, soul and spirit. Spiritual transformation makes you have a share in God’s Glory.

Do you want to be famous like Moses, highly informed like the Prophets, powerful like Jesus Christ, rugged like the disciples of Jesus Christ, rich like Rebecca or rule the world like Joseph? Then your life must be transformed by the Holy Spirit today!

Not everyone who gives their life to Jesus is transformed. Why? Because they confess Jesus Christ as their saviour with their mouth, go to church regularly, pay tithes but refused to surrender everything about their body, soul and spirit to God for control.

Today’s sermon would teach you how to join the premium category of Christians who are transformed by the Holy Spirit.

Who is the Holy Spirit?

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of GOD. No one can comprehend everything about GOD and His Spirit except the few He reveals to us.

GOD is so powerful that His Spirit is actively present everywhere and not considering where His Being is enthroned.

Genesis chapter 1 verse 2 says: “The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.”

Jesus says: “But when the Helper comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who proceeds from the Father, He will testify of Me.” (John 15:26)

The prophecy of Jesus as stated above means the Spirit of the LORD will be with us permanently unlike the Old Testament.

7 Preparatory Steps to Make You Transformed by the Holy Spirit

The book of Luke chapter 19 verse 1 to 10 narrated the story of Zacchaeus:

“…Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich. And he sought to see who Jesus was, but could not because of the crowd, for he was of short stature.

So, he ran ahead and climbed up into a sycamore tree to see Him… And when Jesus came to the place, He looked up and saw him, and said to him, “Zacchaeus, make haste and come down, for today I must stay at your house.”

So, he made haste and came down, and received Him joyfully…Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold. And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house…””

Let’s use the story of the transformed chief tax collector as our guide:

1. Strive to know GOD and Jesus Christ

Read the Bible, attend Bible studies and hear from genuine servants of GOD.

2. Disallow Distraction and Procrastination

I am not surprise that anyone who seeks to be transformed by the Holy Spirit is always distracted, because it’s the strategy of the devil. Reject anything that would discourage you from moving closer to Jesus Christ.

3. Delight to be in the presence of Jesus Christ

4. Don’t be monotonous in your prayers but patiently hear from the LORD as well. Praise and Worship GOD.

5. Obey all the instructions of the LORD given through Jesus Christ. Obedience is paramount in the process of spiritual transformation.

6. Repent from all sins and do restitution where possible. Don’t live an active sinful life with the claims that GOD’s grace is abundant for you.

7. Always write about the Gospel of Jesus Christ on your social media platforms. Evangelism is not for a caucus but for everyone!

Why Must I be Renewed by the Holy Spirit?

To become transformed by the Holy Spirit is not magical and not for the lazy souls. You must be focused and faithful to the LORD because Christian race is not a sluggish one.

“Then one said to Him, “Lord, are there few who are saved?” And He said to them, “Strive to enter through the narrow gate, for many, I say to you, will seek to enter and will not be able.” (Luke 13:23-24)

Scriptural references showed that glorious transformation would have effect on your; physical appearance, thoughts and spirituality.

The objective of GOD to get you transformed by the Holy Spirit is to make you be like Him. You cannot be GOD but HE expects you to imitate some of His Holy attributes.

Whenever anyone or a voice tells you that you cannot be like GOD, remember I told you that it is the voice of the devil.

“Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and say to them: ‘You shall be holy, for I the LORD your God am holy.’” (Leviticus 19:2)
