Finding Real Change
August 3, 2009
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.
Do you think that lasting change in a person is really possible?
The world says probably not. In fact, some behavioral psychologists tell us that by the time someone is five or six, a person is psychologically who they’ll be for a lifetime.
And geneticists say that we are who are as a result of our genetic material. They say you and I have inherited behavioral traits and genetic predispositions that are set for life.
These thoughts aren’t very promising, are they?!
Every week, I receive letters and emails from people who are desperate to know if they can change. Some people are addicted to drugs or are involved in other sinful activities and their lives are filled with trauma and pain.
Maybe even you are wondering today if you can really change!
If so, remember that on your own, you cannot change. Only Jesus Christ can change you. And there is no person who’s so far gone that God’s grace cannot reach them.
THROUGH JESUS CHRIST, YOU CAN CHANGE!
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
