Crescendo of Transformation

Grateful glory, marvelous grace, it just
keeps getting better and better. Salvation
is hard work, but believe me, it's well worth
the effort.  The timetable of the spirit
realm runs a bit slower than our modern
one, but Jesus wasn't kidding when he
likened the process to giving birth.
There's the incubation, the growth, the swelling
with possibility.  When the contractions begin
they start off slow, not too strong, then
gradually increase in intensity and duration.
They come closer and closer together,
building into a crescendo of transformation,
and just when you think you can't take it
any longer, unto us a child is born!
