Thoughts on Transformation

The 2016 NLW theme is "Libraries Transform." We all need the transformation and renewal that comes as the Spirit works actively in our lives. Keep these verses in mind as we celebrate National Library Week.

2 Corinthians 3:18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

Romans 12:2: And do not be fashioned according to this age, but be transformed by the renewing of the mind that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and well pleasing and perfect.
