Quote of Note #37: Salvation as Transformation

“What men call ‘salvation’ is simply the first stage of God’s plan for our lives, which is to conform us in character and power to the image of Jesus Christ.  If we fail to see our relationship to God as such, we will allow too many areas within us to remain unchanged.  Pulling down strongholds is the demolition and removal of our old ways of thinking so that the actual presence of Jesus Christ can be manifested through us.”
