Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind… Romans 12:2 (NIV)
Change is one of the hardest things to do and yet change is exactly what we are called to do. But here is the good news. The kind of change that God wants of us is not just about pleasing God (as important as that is), changing to be more like Him leads to something that is deeply satisfying and good for us. Change (or transformation) is a desire for us from a loving God. He knows that a person who overcomes the sin in their life will ultimately discover a more abundant life. A life full of the fruit of the Spirit. A life with deep and meaningful relationships. A life that knows the “Peace that surpasses all understanding” even when faced with the difficulties of life.
Hills Church is a place for you to take that journey of transformation. We’re a place that will encourage, support and prayerfully uphold you in that journey with understanding and love, and it’s a journey that is for everyone including me.
If the Holy Spirit promoted you on Sunday to attend to something in your life, please don’t think you’re on your own. One of the purposes of the church is to support each other through our struggles and temptations, and so my invitation to you is to respond. Talk to me or one of our elders so we can be your supporter and prayer partner. Embrace the idea of change and reap the benefits of the abundant life. Nothing excites me more than a life transformed to be more like Jesus.
