Change

They complain because of the continuous repetition of life, then they complain when they are inconvenienced, and that repetition is interrupted.

Sameness brings security to these, the interruptions constitute anxiety, change is not easily accepted by some individuals.

“For I am the LORD, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed.” (Malachi 3:6)

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” (Romans 12:2)

When we are born-again, we are in the beloved, we are the righteousness of God in Christ, and we always will be, there will never be found any righteousness in us apart from the Lord Jesus Christ, not in this life or in eternity. We cannot change in that respect. We pray to God through Jesus Christ; we are to come boldly to the throne of grace through Him. “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.” (John 15:5)

If you are saved there is one thing you need to get used to, and that is change. To grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord means change, to put off the old man is to change, my friends, there is no such thing as a stagnant Christian.

All things happen for good because the Almighty is changing us, flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God, we will be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, when we see Him we will be like Him. We are told to be Holy, for He is Holy, that means an effort, a willingness to be changed, a desire on our part to never feel comfortable where we are, and that is the point of this poorly written letter, as it seems to be so many times, those who profess Jesus Christ as Lord who have become comfortable here on this planet, who have built a life and home for themselves here, who want no real growth in the Lord outside of the hollow words they speak on this matter, that subject.

If the continuity of their life is interrupted by a calling from the Lord they will offer more excuses than Moses did at the burning bush.

Following the pattern each and every week, believing that to be their supposed salvation, the culmination of seeking the face of God. To grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord means nothing more than listening to what the pastor has to say on Sunday morning, and then returning to the continuum of the security of sameness, and all the while believing there are rewards waiting for them in their eternal home.

Are their hearts far from Him? Do they fear change because of what He may call them to do for His glory? Are they truly saved?

How does one react to the one who claims to have been saved for decades but cannot expound upon the simplest of precepts within the Scriptures? Who can speak at length about the world, their life in it, all but the Scriptures intelligently?

There is a difference between fearing God and fearing to be used by God. Who was Paul speaking to when he said by now you should be teachers, a select few only?

If you are not changing now, what makes you think you will be changed then?
