Our perception, the way we see things, has much to do with our transformation. We need the new wine to affect our thinking. When we are walking with Christ, we let go of our old identity that was form by the opinions and disapproval of others. And lay down our old identity to have Christ's identity imported to us. Song of Solomon 2:1, "He is the lily of the valleys." Lilies speak of purity and beauty. She feeds her self from His beauty and purity.
I am in awe how God can transform us all if we lay down before Him. He is faithful!
