Changing

Change is the only way to get right with God. We "change" through Jesus Christ from lost to found. Paul knew that change was part of our human condition. He also knew the steadfastness of God. "I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.  I can do all this through him who gives me strength." - Philippians 4:12-13 

Let's take a look at three attitudes and three principles of change:
3 ATTITUDES TOWARD CHANGE
1. The future will not be like the past.
2. The future will not be like what we expect.
3. The rate of change will be faster in the future than in the past.

3 PRINCIPLES OF CHANGE
1. Growth equals change; you cannot grow unless you change.
2. Don’t confuse immobility with stability.
3. Change is the price we pay for growth. We must give up to grow up.

Today may we consider our attitude towards change and make sure it lines up with Jesus'. Amen?
