Bishop Rob Wright: Why Change?

What prompted Paul to change his life? Jesus called his name and asked him a question. That's what happened at our numerous conversion experiences.   

Though God is cosmic, we've had experiences of God being personal with us. It's the whisper, a truth uttered softly, words that beg action. When God speaks to us, it's never a long soliloquy. Not condemnation. It's a life altering question posed. And, it is our truthful answer to Jesus' questions that produce new life. Help us to answer honestly Lord!  

There's no magic in conversion. It's a lifelong partnership of saying yes to God. Our next conversion, a more full embrace of Jesus' truth, is already at work in us. Why? " equip the saints for the work of ministry, to build up the body of Christ and to grow up into the full stature of Christ." Ephesians 4. 12-13
