A First Step in Change

Change is everywhere!  Political candidates can not say 3 sentences without harping on how they will “change it all up”.

In the current message series at PSM we are in a Campaign for Change.  The theme throughout each message is: We are to “be the change”.  Jesus modeled change as a forgiver and a servant.  Instead of us looking for change to happen to us, we need to look for change we can ignite and initiate.

If you are looking for a quick step to change, here is a simple answer: stop procrastinating.  You can launch change promptly by eliminating procrastination in your life.  Change is the antithesis to procrastination. The status quo is “I’ll wait until later to do that.”

While walking by that stack of clothes on the floor, it is so tempting to say, “I am not in the mood right now to deal with those.”  CHANGE is picking them up now.  It is tempting to put off a relationship with your neighbor.  CHANGE is taking the time now.  We often resist the urge to have a tough conversation with someone you love.  CHANGE is bringing up the topic now.

Mark Twain summed up most of our sentiments when he said, ” Never put off till tomorrow what may be done day after tomorrow just as well.

If the world is to change, it will start in little pockets of people.  From there, God produces great growth.  Only He has the power to grow.  I believe God is excited about seeing His people get excited about the process.
