2020 – MONDAY 02 MARCH
PEOPLE NEVER CHANGE
I served with a key leader in our
church movement who was well known for his saying – “people never change.”
I totally disagree with such a pessimistic saying.
We should not allow such preachers in our pulpits.
THE CROSS CHANGED HISTORY
The intervention by God in sending His Son Jesus to die for the sins of all mankind – absolutely changed forever the way God and people connect.
The cross makes us aware of our NEED FOR CHANGE
SALVATION CHANGES PEOPLE
The gospel is the good news that there is hope – and through Christ you can change.
When we receive Jesus as Saviour our spirit is completely changed – and we are born again.
We are PARENTALLY CHANGED from the father of lies – to the Father of eternal life.
OUR SPIRIT IS CHANGED
THE WORD CHANGES US
The Bible promises to renew our minds and bring about behavioural change – through the renewing or changing of our mind.
WE ARE BEHAVIOURALLY CHANGED by obedience to the word of God.
OUR MIND & SOUL IS CHANGED
OUR FAITH CHANGES US
The greatest change of all is when we learn to live by faith in God’s great faithfulness.
We are then BATTLE CHANGED – and learn to shift from defeat – to a life of victory and blessing.
OUR PHYSICAL WORLD IS CHANGED
OUR FELLOWSHIP CHANGES US
The church is the place of great change. It is in church that we are BONDING CHANGED.
We become bonded to those who are sanctified, and they help us to keep changing.
OUR CONNECTIONS ARE CHANGED
THANK GOD WE ARE BEING CHANGED – FROM GLORY TO GLORY
