"Transformation" – Part 1 is a four lesson study that will help you develop greater intimacy in Christ. Out of your intimacy with Christ, you experience immersion in Christ, which is Lordship. Intimacy will allow you to experience a greater amount of God's Holiness and character. The natural result of experiencing God's Holiness and character is the exposure of areas of sin and disobedience. Immersion is your response of Lordship to those areas of sin that are contrary to God so that you can be drawn into greater intimacy with Him.
"Transformation" is a three part Bible study that covers the 4 I's to the transformed life: Intimacy, Immersion, Integrity, and Involvement. "Transformation" is unique because it does not allow you to move from Part 1 (Intimacy and Immersion) into Part 2 (Integrity) and Part 3 (Involvement) without the continual reinforcement and encouragement to live intimately with Christ. Each lesson in Part 2 (Integrity) and Part 3 (Involvement) begins with a Scripture and question on intimacy, immersion, and the Holy Spirit. These three Scriptures continue the transformative process by continuing to challenge your intimacy and Lordship with Christ. The process of transformation occurs not through an exercise of how much Biblical content you take into your life, but how you continue to grow in intimacy with Christ while becoming more immersed in Him through the work of the Holy Spirit. Your life in Christ is not an exercise in your talents and effort but an expression of Christ's life lived through you. The actualization of Intimacy, Immersion, Integrity, and Involvement leads to the “transformation” of your life in Christ.
"Transformation" – Part 2 covers the third I - Integrity. Integrity consists of thirteen lessons to help you in your walk with Christ. The topics covered under integrity will be foundational in experiencing a victorious Christian life.
"Transformation" – Part 3 covers the fourth I - Involvement. Involvement consists of four lessons. The natural result of Intimacy will be the exposure of areas of your life that need to be submitted to Christ. The greater your Immersion in Christ – the greater your desire to experience more of Him. As you live out your life using the lessons of Integrity, you will have a greater desire to express Christ's life in you through Involvement. Part 3, Involvement, will help you be used more by God to minister to a dark and hurting world. The last lesson of Part 3 encourages and teaches you in seeking God's will and where He is leading you.
"TRANSFORMATION - Part 1 - Intimacy and Immersion" contains the following lessons:
- Transformation Planner
The "Transformation Planner" was designed to help you apply what God is teaching you in this study. "Transformation" more than any other study is designed for God's transformational power to be released out of His intimacy with you. This planner will help this happen.
- Lesson 1 - Intimacy - Developing Intimacy with God
Lesson 1 teaches the importance of building intimacy with Jesus. This lesson focuses on the habit of developing intimacy through your daily quiet time.
- Lesson 2 - Intimacy - More Intimacy with God
Lesson 2 continues to help you build intimacy with Jesus so that your heart and spirit are prepared for immersion with Him. It is out of your intimacy with Jesus that God's power and work is manifest in you.
- Lesson 3 - Immersion - Living for Christ
Lesson 3, Living For Christ, introduces you to immersion which is the process of yielding your life to Christ in Lordship. Your intimacy in Christ will always present you opportunities for greater levels of immersion. The process of immersion leads you to becoming Christ-like.
- Lesson 4 - Immersion - Lordship
Lesson 4 continues to develop the process of making Christ Lord of every area of your life. Immersion is your response to God’s work, calling, and influence in your life. Out of your total surrender in making Christ the Lord of your life, you release the full power and work of the Holy Spirit.
Answers to Lessons
Each lesson is provided in a dual format. The first lesson includes the Scriptures and questions, while the second provides Scriptures, questions, and answers. It is recommended that, once the study is completed, you go back through the study using the lesson that includes answers. Go through the lesson with answers not as a routine exercise, but ask the Holy Spirit to impress upon you what you should apply to your life. Make your applications specific and accountable instead of merely desires with no accountability to implement.
If you are doing the lesson with another person, you should complete the lesson without looking at the answers. Allow God to speak to you in the lesson. God can always impress upon you new truth or conviction where you fall short - no matter how familiar you are with a topic.
