At that time the Spirit of the Lord will come powerfully upon you, and you will prophesy with them. You will be changed into a different person.”
See when Saul is open to accept what God says he was set apart but when he thinks of his transformation as nothing, he turns to the world and the change means nothing. Its ties in with what Jesus says in John chapter 12.
John 12:25 NLT
“Those who love their life in this world will lose it. Those who care nothing for their life in this world will keep it for eternity.”
Truly this is how we live like Jesus. We don’t get caught up in our desires and lusts and we let go of all that drives our flesh and feelings, and we live the way Jesus showed us. When His example means more to us, then we will understand what it is to live. Look what He says next,
John 12:26 NLT
“Anyone who wants to serve me must follow me, because my servants must be where I am. And the Father will honor anyone who serves me.”
Who do you serve? When it is Him and not us, we thrive, and God gets the glory. Amen
