A Wendy’s is directly on our route from home to school. And one day we noticed construction equipment parked in the lot. And the next day we noticed a sign that said “Wendy’s is Renovating.”
But over the next few days, it looked like much more than a renovation. It looked like a demolition.
And I had to laugh.
Sometimes we think what we need is a renovation, but what we really need is a demolition.
We think that if we change a few habits, get a better job, get a new boyfriend, or renovate our kitchen … our life will be infinitely better. We think we need renovation.
But what we really need is demolition.
And a sign that says “Renovation” is fooling nobody.
Jesus doesn’t just want to renovate our lives. He wants to transform our lives.
He’s not going for mere renovation. He’s going for transformation.
Jesus wants to change us from the inside-out.
And , I have to say, transformation often begins with demolition. At least it did for me.
When we get unveiled, come clean, get naked, we are welcomed into God’s presence to sit at his feet and behold him in his glory. As we fix our eyes on Jesus instead of our silly renovation projects, the transformation process begins.
We all with unveiled faced beholding the glory of the Lord are being transformed into His image from one measure of glory to another. 2 Corinthians 3:18
