Change is hard. We often need it, but we also don’t really want it. We’re comfortable in our own mess; we like things the way they are. But God wants to change us—he wants to give us a new life. In this message, Pastor Jason Strand challenges us to ask God to change us, and put in the hard work to make that change happen.
Most of our prayers are way too safe. Bless this food. Help me do well on this test. Please let there be a parking spot. But what if we prayed more boldly—even dangerously—for God to use us in new and exciting ways? This may take us out of our comfort zones, but it could also bring us exactly where God wants us to be.
