The Joy of Change
Morning Thought: Am I pliable in God’s hands? Change is a way of life for those in Christ. Not any kind of change, like changing my hair style, but inward change that makes us more like Jesus. Sometimes these changes are sweeping and dramatic; other times, they are small refinements. But no matter the size, each day there should be something fresh and new about us. In Scripture, the wicked are defined by their unchanging nature; they are stiff-necked, stuck in their ways. But with Jesus we go from glory to glory. Look at the contrast between Psalm 59:19 and 2 Corinthians 3:18. “With whom there is no change, And who do not fear God” (Ps. 59:19b). “But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as from the Lord, the Spirit” (2 Cor. 3:18).
