1Maybe you’ve made some wrong turns and arrived at some dead ends. God loves you and He is willing to recalculate your route to put you on the right track for abundant life. Don’t give up on God, because He hasn’t given up on you!
2Have you become old and unimpressed? Maybe it’s time for a change of you to become like a little child. Look into the eyes of a child when they see a rainbow, or a butterfly, or a caterpillar, or a mud hole—that’s joyful wonder. Most of us have lost and need to recapture that sense of fun and joy kids have.
3The church of the Lord Jesus Christ must change the way we share God’s message. Notice I didn’t say we need to CHANGE the message, I said we need to change the WAY we share God’s message. There’s a saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Well, the way we’re sharing the gospel must be broke, because it’s not working as well as it once did. We need to wake up to the sobering fact that we aren’t doing a very good job of reaching people in our own nation.
