In theater, the definition of a transformation is a seemingly miraculous change in what appears before the audience. For Christians, however, we settle for much less than anything miraculous... we settle for the expected. For what we can do on our own. We embrace Jesus because we desire change, but we embrace Him on our own terms. That's where "Transform" lays down a challenge - as "Break My Heart" asks, "Can you see Jesus in me? Or do you see what I want Him to be?"
We all are sinners, yet we judge the sins of those who don't know Jesus so harshly that we won't even offer up the Gospel story to them as an alternative. We don't invite people into our churches because they don't follow our so-called traditions. We kick people out of churches because their appearance bothers us. It doesn't have to be that way... but only if we have the courage to open ourselves up to something miraculous.
That's what this album asks you to do. It challenges your faith. It asks you if you are keeping your eyes open for the opportunities that God has provided for you. Will you be the light that shines brighter than the brightest star on a clear November night, as the title track asks? Or are you going to throw empty prayers up in the air, remain blind, and hope that someone else is willing to do what you are not?
