This Old House

"[O]ffer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God .... Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind." - Romans 12:1a, 2a
I enjoy TV shows like "This Old House". They start out with a damaged, worn down, obsolete house then piece by piece transform it, with the help of the owner, into something valuable. It is still recognizable on the outside, but the inside has become very livable.

God does something similar with our bodies. We start out in sad shape, full of sin and strife, hangups and phobias, broken relationships and you name it. God purchases us 1 and begins piece by piece to transform us, with our cooperation, into something valuable.

We are usually still recognizable on the outside, but the inside becomes very livable for both him and us.
