Most of them (us) want to be different. They (we) just don't want to change.
We want the outcome, but not the process.
Because change is hard.
Until we are willing to do the latter, we will never be the former.
One of the roles of the Christian is to be an agent of change, relying on the Holy Spirit through the use of Scripture. We are to be an agent of change in our lives as well as in the lives of others.
And remember, not just any change will do. Any change worth making is biblical change.
So we, as disciples and disciple-makers, must be agents of biblical change, using the Scriptures in the power of the Spirit to effect change both in our lives and in the lives of others.
