I pray that everyone reading this had a great Memorial Day. The 3 day weekend was great for yours truly, I got caught up on some much needed rest.
Today I want to talk to you about change.
Some changes we look forward to...moving to a new city, pay raises, the birth of a new baby...
Others we regret...getting fired from work, a diagnosis of poor health, the loss of our freedoms...
Steven Curtis Chapman talks of a different kind of change in his song...”The Change"...
What about the change? What about the difference? What about the grace? What about forgiveness? What about a life that's showing I'm undergoing the change?
As Christians we are supposed to be imitators of Christ. The world is supposed to see Jesus in us. But so often times that's not the case.
The Bible says that in Christ we are new creatures, the old has gone and the new has come. Is that true in your life?
One of my favorite shows is Extreme Makeover Home Edition. Each week Ty and his crew take a house that's in less than perfect condition and either remodel it or tear it down completely to rebuild a new one. Either way the end product is always better than the one they started with.
But, what if they only remodeled the outside of the house? What if the family and the entire nation saw this beautiful outward shell, only to realize nothing had been changed on the inside? It would be a huge disappointment, wouldn't it?
Guess what? That happens within the church. So often we are dazzled by outward appearances, the best clothes, the fancy cars, etc. we forget that God doesn't base his value on our outward appearance but on the heart.
God works on us from the inside out. He wants us to be like Jesus. He will continue to remodel us and reshape us until it is all people see...
Let him change your heart today...
Until Friday,.keep the faith...Pastor Chris
