Change Or Miss Out

“But new wine must be put into new wineskins, and both are preserved. And no one, having drunk old wine, immediately desires new; for he says, ‘The old is better.’ ””
Luke 5:38-39 NKJV

Most everyone has a problem with change. We all, after a while, become familiar, comfortable, secure, and adept to that which at one time was considered a change. Unfortunately, at the expense of progress, we sometimes hold on to methodologies, practices, and traditions that have become obsolete and ineffective.

Many of the Jews during the time that Jesus walked the earth were unwilling to let go of the Law of Moses so that they might receive their Messiah, Jesus. They did not know all they were forfeiting in order to hang on to something that would soon be put to rest when Jesus died, was buried, and then resurrected.

I wonder how much we have all missed out on when we fail to be open to change. It may make sense to change things on a regular basis, no matter how seemingly insignificant, so as to get conditioned for change. We must allow the "lesser to die, so that the greater might live".

God's word never changes, but WE surely should.
