Godly Change

He will take these weak mortan bodies of ours and change them into glorious bodies like his own, using the same mighty power that he will use to conquer everything everywhere.  (Philippians 3:21 NLT)

   God is unchangeable.  The Bible says that he is the same yesterday, today, and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)But at the same time he loves to make changes in you.  He's a master decorator.  Give him a place in your heart and you will experience change.  The process may not be pleasant.  You may suffer some discomfort and pain, but in the midst grace abounds.  Old thoughts slowly disappear and new God like thoughts take their place.  Change comes gradually.  You may not notice it at all, but others will. 

   Paul says in Philippians 1:6, "And I am sure that God, who began making the changes within you, will continue his work until it is finished on that day when Christ Jesus comes back again." (my paraphrase)

    Your creator is remaking you into the image of his Son, Jesus Christ.  He wants you to be just like Jesus.  Are you willing to allow the changes he wants to make take place?
