Human nature says: ‘I am who I am, and you can’t change me!’
But the Christian life is one of repentance and faith, and so involves continual change. In his helpful book ‘You Can Change: God’s Transforming Power for our Sinful Behaviour and Negative Emotions’ (Inter-Varsity Press, Nottingham, 2008), Tim Chester gives four life-changing truths about God:
God is great – so we don’t have to be in control.
God is glorious – so we don’t have to fear others.
God is good – so we don’t have to look elsewhere.
God is gracious – so we don’t have to prove ourselves.
How might these truths help you address the sins and emotions you struggle with this week?
In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
