Changing Times

It could be said that “change” is a very unpopular word. Mark Twain said once, “The only person who likes change is a wet baby.” Not many people like change, especially when it doesn’t seem for the better. We would all agree that we are currently living in a time where everything is changing. How do we respond?

By remaining in the hands of God. Facing CHANGE in the hands of our CHANGELESS God is where we want to be. God’s word teaches us that change is a useful part of God’s plans and purposes for us. In fact, change is a part of life. We are currently moving into a new season … spring! God perfectly designed the changing seasons and all of us are grateful for the coming spring. If this is the case, then we should also embrace the changing landscape because we know we are in the hands of a CHANGELESS God.

Joshua and the Israelites were facing a major change. Their leader, Moses, had died. Joshua was selected as the new leader. They were facing the change of leadership and the challenge of taking the promised land. Notice what God said: “As I was with Moses, so I will be with you; I will never leave you nor forsake you.” (Joshua 1:5b) God does not change and neither does the mission! “Get ready to cross the Jordan River into the land I am about to give to them – to the Israelites.” (Joshua 1:2b)

Through a year of constant change, we fought hard to stay on mission; knowing that we were in the hands of an UNCHANGING God. As a result, people received Christ, many were baptized, generations were discipled, and the mission was supported near and far. This report celebrates staying on mission in the face of change.
