Surprise! People Sometimes Change

Things which are impossible
with men are possible with God.
                        —Luke 18:27

People that we are sure will never change sometimes do.

Every church has a few people in its pews who are a surprise to everyone—even their relatives.

Two of the most lovable and effective church elders I’ve ever worked with were off-the-rails bad boys well into their adult years. No one could have imagined them ever showing up in church, much less becoming church leaders.

When Jesus spoke of the seeming impossibility of certain people entering the kingdom, his befuddled disciples asked. “Who then can be saved?” Jesus replied, “Things which are impossible with men are possible with God.”

Write that sentence on your heart. It will come in handy when you have doubts about what God can do and who God can change.

Invite God into your impossibility.
