I Corinthians 2:1-5
1. Faith of the senses
Wonderful feelings and sometimes deep pain can lead a person to the Lord.
We need a faith that transforms from the inside out, not the outside in.
2. Faith of the reason
You could be persuaded to have faith in God.
Trusting the Lord does not mean being mindless.
3. Faith of the spirit
A faith that changes your convictions, your behaviors your motivations.
True transforming faith is when God convinces you to become His child.
What happens with transforming faith
1. Christ opens the way for a one to one relationship between God and you.
2. There is a demonstration of the Holy Spirit and of power.
We don't change ourselves. God changes us from within.
The Spirit of God can convince us that God is real, that He loves us, that Jesus died to save us, and
that we can live a new life of purpose and hope.
