Rather than calling us to the latest change fad, rather than calling us to some kind of religiously blessed conformity or right behavior, let me instead suggest that what God is calling us to is nothing more, and nothing less, than a full embrace of the Gospel. It is moving from death to life, from brokenness to wholeness in Jesus Christ. Godly change is the embrace of the best expression of who we were uniquely created to be.

Change then is not a mindless call to conformity or obedience, the transformation called for is not a complete rejection of who you think you are. Instead, change is the embrace of the unique person that God created you to be. It will be different for each of us. While we share the incredible privilege of being created in the image of God; each of us are unique, one-of-a-kind combinations of gifts, talents, abilities, personality, and possibilities.
