“Change can be scary, but you know what’s scarier? Allowing fear to stop you from growing, evolving, and progressing.” Mandy Hale
Why does the idea of “change” create such fear on the part of so many people? One possible answer is the idea that change brings something negative or bad. The idea is also associated with the tendency of introducing liberalism.
We do not condone or promote unbiblical or inappropriate change. The idea of change, however, can be a positive, powerful, and necessary approach to growth. As expressed, it is possible that our fear of change hinders growth and progress.
Change is biblical. The idea is expressed in the term – repentance. There must be a change of mind that implements a change in action and direction. God intended this change to be a part of the Christian life.
If we consider change from a methodological or philosophical point of view, without wading into areas that are unbiblical or inappropriate, we might be looking at the greatest way to produce growth and progress.
Our fear of change must not stifle us from achieving all that God can do through us.
