Renovate. It’s a bright, hope-filled verb that literally means “to make new or like new.” When applied to a house…it’s exciting. When applied to a person’s life…it’s the work of God alone. Please join us this Easter for an insightful new series from Pastor Brian Loveless called “Renovate: How God’s Truth Changes Everything.”
(We also invite you to join us each Sunday evening at 6:00 pm for our current study in the book of Nehemiah.)
I recently came across this quote from Kyle Idleman, author of a marvelous book entitled “Not a Fan.”
“Most of us don’t mind Jesus making some minor change in our lives but Jesus wants to turn our lives upside down. Fans don’t mind him doing a little touch up work, but Jesus wants complete renovation. Fans come to Jesus thinking tune up, but Jesus is thinking overhaul. Fans think a little makeup is fine, but Jesus is thinking makeover. Fans think a little decorating is required, but Jesus wants a complete remodel. Fans want Jesus to inspire them, but Jesus wants to interfere with their lives. “
May God help us not to settle for anything less!
