MORE THAN CHANGE (When I grow up…in a year or two or three) Shirley Temple
Pastor Joy illustrates the process of change that occurs with Christians and the struggles and glee that goes with the transformation. Assuredly, our pastor stresses the three avenues provided to assist with our continuing journey of arriving to the point of being BORN AGAIN: we are provided with: God’s word through the Bible to include His CHURCH as enablers and too, the engagement of prayer to communicate with our Father through his Son during our wait here on earth to eventual Heaven.
During this transition period we are to perform Christ’s new commandment and that is to “Love one another as HE loved us.” The idea here is to NOT GIVE UP but commune with our God and with each other knowing that the final outcome is of victory and the complete emergence with Christ and the Saints in the end.
