A Change is Coming because…


Look for God to open locked door. With God, all things are possible.

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was formless and empty, and darkness covered the deep waters. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the surface of the waters. Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. Then he separated the light from the darkness. God called the light “day” and the darkness “night.” And evening passed and morning came, marking the first day. Genesis 1: 1-5

Look for God in the unexpected! God chooses to work through some of the most unlikely people ( God makes a somebody out of a nobody).

Rehab, a prostitute, is remembered more for her selfless, kindness, and helpfulness than for prostitution. Her good deed is highlighted wherever the Gospel is proclaimed.

King David, son of Jesse and a shepherd, is remembered more for his bravery and unabashed love of God than for his murder of Uriah the Hittite.

The Apostle Peter – Before his encounter with Christ, Peter was a common Galilean fisherman. After studying faithfully with Christ and pledging his allegiance to Jesus; on the night Jesus was betrayed, Peter publicly denied his association with Christ.  His impetuous nature and shortcomings highlight the grace of God and the love of God that forgives sin and restores wholeness to that which breaks.  Peter’s missionary work permeates the New Testament and is lauded throughout the Christian Church.

Look for God to transform and redeem that which seems unredeemable.

The Apostle Paul (His name was changed from Saul of Tarsus) murdered thinking he was doing God’s work. Saul’s conversion to “The Way” highlights the power of God to transform any life from doing evil into doing good.

The life of every person who stopped doing evil and now practices doing good, testifies to the power of God to transform lives.

Look for God to:  instill hope, demand justice for all, and to work through people to  effect positive change.

A change is coming because God cares about the oppressed!
