All this week we have been talking about Kingdom Workers. Kingdom Workers are loved, they are rescued, and they are united. Today we spent our time in Ephesians 4 & 5, discovering that Kingdom Workers are changed.
When you really think about it, change is often negative. It seems to be about giving something up that we really want to hold on to. When a student attempts to change by making a New Year's resolution, they might choose to give up pizza and go to the gym, or to give up netflix time and focus on their grades. For adults, change often means giving up what we want too. Just think about the last time your home insurance agent called you with "changes" to your policy...
Kingdom Workers must change, but change for us is not negative! Change for us means opening ourselves to the work of the Holy Spirit. It's not the negative giving up of something we like, or something good. It's the fantastic power of God, changing us and giving us new life. We don't give up the good, we get it!
Kingdom Workers are changed, and that change happens only by the power of our God. We're excited for you to see the change in your students when they get home. God has really worked in our group this week, and he will continue to change our lives through the rest of Move and beyond. Tomorrow our students will learn that Kingdom Workers are sent. It's our final day, so we'll see you all soon!
