Change – It’s Not A Four-Letter Word!

Change – It’s Not A Four-Letter Word!
by David Marquard

Change – No it’s not a four-letter word. One of the most difficult things that we deal with in life is change. It seems to go against the natural inclination of man. Every one of us has a tendency to like things to remain as they are. Don’t disturb my routine. It’s working just fine. Yet the reality is that change is natural to life. We change from childhood to adolescence to adulthood. We move from the playground to the school to the workplace, from singlehood to marriage, and on and on it goes.

If you think about it, there is no life where there is no change. Anything that is not changing is already dead.

The Word of God tells us that, when we give our lives to Christ, He takes us from glory to glory, from one level of goodness and grace to another. That is the exciting thing about hanging out with God. He will always lift you up to another level of life. Jesus came to give us life and that more abundantly! When you connect with God, when Jesus is your Lord, your future will never be stagnant. It will always be dynamic and exciting. Our God is a great God. Surrender your life to Him, and you will never regret the changes that only He can bring!
