When you shake a water bottle full of water, water comes out. No matter how hard you may try, you won’t get soda, or tea. The water was already inside, so the water will come out.
Most people want to change something about their lives in search of “something more” to fulfill us or make us whole. Often, we look to exterior things as a solution; we change our jobs, majors, homes, outfits, online profiles, or notes. And while all of that can be okay, no matter how much we change, at the end of the day, we’re still the same “us”. And so the journey to find that something more continues.
Jesus said, “I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly” (John 10:10) That’s what we’re made for! That’s what we’re looking for. I’ve heard it said that Jesus didn’t just come to make bad people good, he came to make dead people alive. And that’s the kind of change that only he can bring about in us: New Life for our souls. We can change our circumstances and exterior problems all we want, but if we don’t look inside to see what we’re made of, the problems will persist.
If you really want to change invite Jesus into your life! Have you been away from church? Get involved again and find purpose within a community of believers. Allow God to transform you from the inside out.
