Transformation as a Process

While speaking on transformation this past weekend, I tried to remind my listeners that growth in the Christian life is a process, not a moment. Here's the way Whitefield described it:

"The renewal of our natures is a work of great importance. It is not to be done in a day. We have not only a new house to build up, but an old one to pull down."
(George Whitefield (1714-1770), letter)
