The Change Starts from “Within”

2 Corinthians 5:17 says” Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come, The old has gone, the new is here!


What is it about change that scares people? Everything around us is changing, from our careers, home, family, relationships and etc. Could it be that we don’t like new things? And so we tend to fight when change comes? We like the fact that we have become so comfortable that we don’t want to feel uncomfortable?

Regardless of what the reason or reasons may be one thing is for sure, change is going to happen we can’t stop it we can mope all we like we can whine and complain but change is going to happen rather we like it or not.

The Bible gives us many scriptures pertaining to change, and today I want to talk about one of them and that is the change that happens on the inside of each of us.  In 2 Corinthians 5:17 it says” If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come.

This is the sign of the new man who brought about the change in us. And still many of us are fighting the new man because we don’t like change this is why we struggle with living righteous. For it requires us to change and we don’t want to change we want to continue be in control of our lives. The old man is dead stop trying to resurrect him.

Until a person change in their hearts they will never be able to change the things around them.  For when the heart change then and only then are we able to see things the way Christ sees them. AMEN
