The Evidence of Change
By Greg Sanders

Matthew 4:19 Jesus called out to them, “Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!” 20 And they left their nets at once and followed him. 21 A little farther up the shore, he saw two other brothers, James and John, sitting in a boat with their father, Zebedee, repairing their nets. And he called them to come, too. 22 They immediately followed him, leaving the boat and their father behind.

Surrendering to the call of Jesus will always leave evidence of change. For the early disciples, the proof of following Jesus included abandoned fishing boats, an abandoned tax collecting both, and a new passion that took them on an incredible journey. It is not difficult to look at the lives of these men and see evidence of change. The question for today is, “Can others see signs of change in us?” Another issue would be, “How old is the evidence?”

First, understand if there is no proof of change that people can point to, we must question ourselves regarding our whole-hearted surrender to Christ.

Second, if all the change in our lives is a decade old, then we must examine and see if somewhere along the way we stopped following Christ completely.

Jesus is always leading us to change. He is constantly changing us to become more and more like Him. This process should leave in its wake an evidence of change for you to see and for others to follow.

Today’s Challenge: Never stop allowing the Lord to change you. Continually surrender to His desire to transform you into His image. Pray today that the Lord will show you the next step in becoming more like Him.
