A Christian is a disciple of Jesus Christ. Instead of being conformed to the world’s mold, in Romans 12:1, the Apostle Paul declares we are to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. This speaks of the power of the Holy Spirit operating in and through the Word of God to transform our lives. As Christians, we are transformed as we continue to yield to the Lordship of Christ. In this way, we bear the image of Jesus Christ to the world and make more image bearers through discipleship (Gen 1:26-27; Mt 28:18-20).
