Transformed Bunnies

A lot of people spend their whole lives trying to change themselves. The problem is that most of our efforts fail, and we revert back to our original, flawed self.

The Magic Trick - Hippity and Hoppity

The transforming bunny rabbit trick is a simple classic, and it comes with a great reveal at the end. You can purchase the trick from a variety of magic stores. I purchase most of my magic tricks from Daytona Magic online. The cheapest set of this trick is found at

The premise of the trick is that the two bunnies will change from black to white each time you turn them around. The audience will think they have the trick figured out, only to be surprised at the end when the bunnies are revealed to be brightly colored. Be sure to have fun while performing the trick.


In the first part of the trick, the rabbits change, but they also change back. This is what life is like when attempt to bring about change on our own. We often fall back into our old habits and patterns. The final transformation, however, is both more dramatic and permanent. The transformation Christ wants to perform in our life is a true life change. He wants to make us shine like stars in a dark universe. He wants to help make us the people we were designed to be. He wants to make us look like Jesus.

The Bible Connection – Transformation, and Sanctification

A lot of people spend their whole lives trying to change themselves. We read self help books, make New Year’s Resolutions, and try new diets. We try to change our physical appearances, develop new habits, and change the kind of person we are.

The problem is that most of our efforts fail, and we revert back to our original, flawed self. The Bible promises that in Christ there is the possibility for real transformation. When we become followers of Jesus, the Holy Spirit moves in and begins to change us so we look more like Jesus. This teaching is all over the New Testament. Here are just a few of the many places you can find this teaching.

We are warned not to be conformed to the patterns of the world, but to be transformed by God. It is easy to give into peer pressure and start looking like the people around you. It is much harder to submit to the work of the Holy Spirit and let it mold us into the image God wants for us.

Paul outlines the difference between the works of the flesh and the work of the Spirit. The flesh is full of selfishness, hatred, and sexual immorality. The life lived in the Spirit is marked by love and self-control. He is calling the church here to be transformed and walk with the Spirit rather than the flesh.

Paul makes the transformation abundantly clear. He has killed his own life and his own passions so he can take up the passions and desires of Christ. Christ is living through him. This comes with a new set of habits, passions, and choices.

Other Scriptures to Use

Here are a few other biblical passages that speak about transformation and sanctification.

David’s prayer of repentance comes to a crescendo in verse 10 when David asks for more than just forgiveness. He asks for a new heart and a renewed spirit. He wants to be transformed.

After listing a list of sins that disqualify people from who will not inherit the kingdom of God, Paul reminds his readers they used to be those kind of people. They used to adulterers and drunks, but that is not who they are anymore; they have been changed by the Holy Spirit.

Paul once again highlights the difference between who we are before we meet Jesus, and who we should be when we start following Him.
