The words to this song by Steven Curtis Chapman have always spoken to my heart in a deeply profound way.
What about the change
What about the difference
What about the grace
What about forgiveness
When I hear it it, is a reminder to be sure that my life is not just an exhibit for the ornaments of the Christian life but there is a profound and ongoing change in my heart.
That I live what I say I believe
And as I struggle with relationships and everyday life I have to ask myself, what about the change?
Is there evidence of the new life 2 Corinthians 5:17 speaks about?
Is there change, a difference in my life that God desires for me, the change that produces grace and forgiveness that rules over my selfishness and pride.
I have to die to who I once was every single day.
But God is faithful to finish the work He started.
Help me Lord to live a life that’s showing I’m undergoing the change.
Therefore, if anyone is united with the Anointed One, that person is a new creation. The old life is gone—and see—a new life has begun!
– 2 Corinthians 5:17
