Read Ephesians 5:1-2
God says we are to be "imitators" of Him, which really means we are to "mimic" Him. Since God is a God of freshness and change, so we should be.
Are you open to change in your life? Are you willing to risk? Are you flexible enough to innovate? Are you willing to tolerate the sheer possibility of making a massive change in your direction for life?
"Lord, is it South America? Great! Or Indonesia? I'll do it. I'll move or change my profession. Fine! Are You leading me into a new venture? I'll do it. Count me in!"
That's the spirit! It may mean moving across the street. It may mean moving across the country. It may mean moving across the seas.
How flexible are you? It may not involve a move at all; only a willingness.

This is grace at its best: when you’re able to say, “They have their lives. And that also means that my attention needs to be on my life.” Only One should be in charge of everyone’s lives...His name is Jesus.
The Son proceeds from the Father like radiance from glory. Although one is distinct from the other, it is impossible for the one to exist without the other. There never was a time when glory existed without its radiance.
One of the first things I learned as a pastor is that if a church is going to impact its community, the church leadership needs to understand the SHAPE of its people so ministry can be gift-based and passion-driven.
THIS is one of our main goals at Insight for Living Canada! We teach others how to study and then apply God’s Word so people, all across the country, can become spiritually self-sustaining followers of Christ who live in the joyful freedom of grace.
