Living in the information age that we are a part of, it is a dangerous conclusion to draw, that our faith is primarily one of acquiring knowledge without converting it into wisdom and understanding. There is no doubt that being informed is vital to right living, but an emphasis must always be the right living.
Allowing ourselves to just become warehouses of information about the faith can be a dangerous and prideful way to go. If what we learn never travels from head to heart, then we may be missing the true significance of the Gospel for our life.
Just like with salvation, knowing what the sanctification (the growing and maturing of characteristics and traits of Jesus Christ into our lives) process is, is not enough. It is not enough to know "just the facts" but it requires a step of action to fulfill God's desire for our lives as true disciples. So how is that we become transformational followers, not just informational believers?
We must understand that when our actions and attitudes in life begin to mirror the teaching of Scripture, we are in the process of transformation. When we take the truths of God's Word and yield to its authority, we are in the process. When we start to see stubborn parts of our life move toward Chrislikeness, we are in the process. When we develop a preference for God's will in our life instead of our own, we are in the process.
Information is vital, but transformation is Godly!
