People are sick of being challenged… We want to change.
We want the kind of change that starts deep within and then works it’s way out. Change that screams it’s way through every pore of our being. Thorough & complete. Not another temporary reaction to a motivational speech or verbal kick in the butt … change from those things stirs our emotions and rarely lasts.
We love to make resolutions, bold statements and grand promises. We write them in permanent ink and then highlight them, double-underline them and add a few stars. We sound serious. We want change. But a month later… No change.
Where are the true revolutionaries of the faith? Is anyone radical for Christ anymore? Have we all become so full of ourselves that we can’t be full of the Holy Spirit? Are we too stubborn to change?
(maybe all of this is just “me talking”… Or maybe it’s more than just me… hmmm)
