Embracing Change

I think it is safe to say that right now we are very focused on change. Change in the seasons and nature; changes in our children as they grow; constant changes in our society and world. 

Easter is really about embracing change. In the weeks leading up to Jesus’ crucifixion, the disciples had to change their view on what Jesus came to do. And certainly, after the resurrection, they were faced with a change in their own plans. Jesus was changing their lives, their future, their entire story – which is exactly what Jesus does for us. 

So this Easter, let’s talk about the way Jesus changed us and how he continues to change us. Often we are hesitant to talk about the things Jesus is doing in our lives because we are ashamed of our choices and experiences. Sometimes we are hesitant because we feel our story is not exciting enough. While the details matter, the most important element of your story is Jesus and what he did for you. 

We asked the MOPS Leadership Experience team to each share a piece of her own story. We wrote one lie we believed or one obstacle we faced and then we wrote the truth of Jesus. These cardboard testimonies use simple materials to tell the powerful story of God’s faithfulness in our lives. 

God wants to use the change in your life to help change someone else’s. If you know about the goodness, forgiveness and faithfulness of God, go tell someone who doesn’t.  Because following Jesus changes everything.
