Deliverance Requires a Transformation

Introduction:  The New Strong’s Concordance of the Bible defines transform as to undergo a complete change which, under the power of God, will find expression in character and conduct.

  1. A Transformation is Required

Romans 6:1-4- Raised to walk in newness of life

  • We were raised to walk differently than we did before.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11- Those practicing these things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

  • But you have been washed, you have been sanctified.

Galatians 5:16-24- We are to walk in newness of life and in doing that we are to walk according to the Spirit not according to the flesh.


  1. Transformation starts in the mind
    There are only two options for the Christian
    Romans 12:2- Be conformed to the world or to be transformed by renewing our minds.
    Ephesians 4:17-24-  The old man lived in the futility (uselessness, pointlessness) of his mind.  We are to renew our mind
    Colossians 3:1- If you were raised (delivered) set your mind on things above not on the things of this world.

Titus 1:15- To the defiled there mind and conscience are even defiled.

  • Defiled in body means defiled in the mind

2 Corinthians 11:1-3- There is always the possibility of our minds being corrupted.

2 Timothy 4:10- Demas chose to conform instead of transforming.

2 Peter 2:20-22- We can get entangled again if we don’t renew our minds

Philippians 4:8- Meditate or think on these things!


  1. Transformation is an indicator of one that has been Delivered
    Exodus 21:6- This identified a slave to his master
  • You could make the observation and know that was a slave to the master.

Romans 12:1- Present yourself a living sacrifice, which is your reasonable service.

Matthew 7:15-20- By their fruits you shall know them. 

  • By our fruits they shall know us!

Matthew 3:8- Therefore bear fruits worthy of repentance.

Matthew 5:13-16- Let your light shine. 


The World Needs to See a Transformation in You!
