GOD-TRACKING IS BEING TRANSFORMED BY THE CROSS
“Today – don’t delay – acknowledge that God took your sins upon the cross when he stepped down in Jesus Christ so that, by faith, you may step up through the cross and be transformed into his image from one degree of glory to another.”
2 Corinthians 3:18
And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.
When I was a teenager I used to love messing about with electronics. I remember building a shocking machine, for fun, out of a 1.5-volt battery and a transformer. Somehow, I managed to cause the transformer to increase the 1.5-volt DC flow to a much higher voltage which I would use to zap my friends. You see, I had succeeded in turning a step-down transformer into a step-up transformer. In so doing, I learnt that there are two types of transformers. The step-down transformer is used to transform high voltage to a low voltage while a step-up transformer is used to transform a low voltage to a high voltage.
As the Son of God, Jesus Christ is God incarnate. That is, he is the human form of the Almighty God. God’s Word became flesh in Jesus. God did this because man had fallen away from the magnificent creature that God had originally created him to be. All of us were transformed away from God’s glorious nature through sin. So, God, in his love and grace, stepped down from his glory, through Jesus, to transform us all and reconcile us again to his nature. Through the step-down transformer of the cross, God removed our sins. And that’s grace. However, good as that was, unless we respond to God’s grace and step-up to his throne, through the transformer of the cross, we will remain unchanged and lost in sin. And we step-up to the throne of grace of God in confidence by faith. We are transformed by grace through faith.
You may have been reading GodTracker for a long time but have never consciously acknowledged Jesus as your Lord and saviour. Or you may desire to not be conformed to this world but transformed by the renewal of your mind, yet have never verbally confessed Jesus as Lord of your life. Today – don’t delay – acknowledge that God took your sins upon the cross when he stepped down in Jesus Christ so that, by faith, you may step up through the cross and be transformed into his image from one degree of glory to another.
God-tracking is being transformed by the cross.

DON’T GIVE UP, LOOK UP & PRAY
I acknowledge that you stepped down through the cross of Jesus so that I could step up to your throne of grace
“Father God, I realise today that I have never actually given myself to you. I realise that I am still conformed to the old sinful nature and not transformed to your glory. Forgive me, Lord, for all my sin. I acknowledge that you stepped down through the cross of Jesus so that I could step up to your throne of grace. Come into my life as I give my life to you. In the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.”
