Transformation requires seeing differently. So, how you see things is a key indicator of whether you are being transformed or NOT! You start down the path of transformation in 2 Peter 1:5-7. After you take the first 5 steps - Faith, Virtue, Knowledge, Self-control and Perseverance you expect transformation. But, that depends on the next 3 steps. The first 5 are critical, but transformation never occurs unless you take the next 3 steps.
