Change! Change! Change! I’ve experienced it! You’ve experienced it!
Life is filled with change. Some change just happens and it knocks us down. Other change is necessary, and we initiate it through our choices. Change is essential for our growth and development as a person, as a people.
Without change, as the old Texas adage goes, “If all you ever do is all you’ve ever done, then all you’ll ever get is all you ever got.”
If there is something that you don’t like about yourself or you find something that is interfering with the pursuit of your goals, well, just change it. Seems simple, doesn’t it? But, as anyone who has ever tried to change knows, it is far from simple or easy. Change can be slow, frustrating, and painful; it can also be engrossing and inspiring. So why is change so difficult? It’s because we usually resist or try to avoid it. It can be risky.
Our personal and professional lives can change. Our religious and spiritual lives can change. Change can happen outwardly or inwardly. God is in the transformation business of changing lives through Jesus Christ. That’s the mission of the church.
Today is our 2nd week of a sermon series titled, “Myth-busters.” Come learn about these myths on change. The reality is that we can trust that God is with us in the midst of whatever life changes we are going through. And that’s Good News!
