Change


“Wherever you go, there you are” is kind of a dumb but very true saying.

I once lived in a tiny, but cozy, attic apartment. From time to time, for a change of perspective and attempting to open up more space, I’d rearrange the furniture.

Moving the couch to the other side of the room did offer a fresh perspective, but, as far as space was concerned, only incremental improvement could be achieved. Why? No matter how much I rearranged the furniture, it was still the same furniture.

If the stuff of your life is holding you back from living a holy life, then it’s time to get new stuff, spiritually speaking.  Incessant rearranging of your inner furniture won’t bring peace or healing.

In Christ everything is new (2 Corinthians 5:17) not just rearranged. To truly be changed, get rid of old thought patterns and habits, and furnish your life with new behaviors and attitudes.

The Bible says, “You must display a new nature because you are a new person, created in God’s likeness—righteous, holy, and true” (Ephesians 4:24, NLT).

You can’t continue to live the same way and expect new results. When we are in Christ, real transformation occurs.
