Change Me

with 4 comments

Change Me

In this physical life, change is inevitable. Every seven years our body’s cells are completely replaced with new ones. It all happens without our conscience involvement.

For most of us, however, it’s the spiritual, the emotional change that is difficult. Change will never happen in our lives unless we want it to. We must be involved.

Merriam Webster gives the definition of “CHANGE” as:

a verb

  • to make different
  • transform
  • to replace with another
  • switch
  • to exchange
  • to undergo a modification

The Apostle Paul wrote about change like this:

Rom. 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

2Cor. 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

1. Before God can change our homes, He must change us.

2. Before God change our church, He must change us.
