Preparing for Change


SAM_0267

 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.Romans 12:3

Did you know that the leaves are being prepared for the changing season long before the first hint of autumn red or yellow appears? The tree seals the base of the stem off from the sap flow in late August. Then, week by week the strong green chlorophyll dies and as it dies we see revealed the less dominant red,yellow and pink chlorophyll below.

In our own lives God is calling for a season of change, Unlike the unvarying laws of seasonal change, we are asked for our own personal choice in the transformation. Only God can do the miracle, but only we can choose to open the door to Him. Just as the Autumn colors are preparing to reveal the beauty hidden in the leaves, so also there lies within our hearts a hidden beauty that will only be known when we surrender ourselves to Christ.

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
