For several years I worked at vacation Bible school. One year, the lessons were illustrated by using the transformer toys, which change as their name shows.
This is also what happens when we’re born again. We’re not the same people, although we certainly aren’t perfect. God helps us to transform instantly in some areas and slower in other areas. One example might be dress. The Lord must deal with us about wearing appropriate clothing. Another area might be relationships. Perhaps some are living together but not married. And then there might be some long-range changes God has to work in our lives.
God changes us as we study His Word, pray, get established in a local church, listen to godly preaching and teaching, and apply what we read and hear.
Every day it is good to ask, “Lord am I changing into someone better and more like You, or am I changing for the worse?
Ask God to help you be more like Him each day.
