Would you like to change your life? A great many people would. There are many specific areas in which people would like to see their lives change. Many would like to become more secure financially. Others would like to change jobs or careers. Some would like to improve their educational status. Many people have serious relational difficulties they would like to change. A great many are trapped in the despair of some addiction they would like to overcome. Some have a self-image problem they would like to improve. The list goes on and on...
Whatever the specific area, people want to change their lives for the better. Some harbor dreams of what they would like to become, but they're never quite ready to make the commitment necessary to get there. Others regret mistakes already made and wish they could somehow undo the damage done by poor choices and bad decisions.
Realistically, is there anything that can be done? Is there true hope that people can change their lives for the better? Is there hope for you? Can you change your life? The answer is, "Yes, absolutely yes!" Naturally, the next question is, "How?"
The power to change lives in the most profound ways is found in God's word. Now, that's not empty preacher-talk. Society is awash with self-help books and seminars. There are more psychiatrists, psychologists, and therapists out there than you can shake a stick at. There are more mood altering medications available, and more people are on them, than ever. Still, all in all things are getting worse. It's time for people to try another source, one that goes deeper, one that can effectively deal with all problems of life and can improve life more profoundly than anything else on the scene.
God's word is that source. It is unique in that it is truly God's word. The apostle Paul stated, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God..." (2 Timothy 3:16). The most literal meaning in the original language is that scripture is God breathed. The sense is that scripture is the very word of God. The men God used to write it down were guided by Him to write what they wrote (2 Peter 1:20-21). They truly wrote God's word.
The word of God is described as "living and powerful" (Hebrews 4:12). Indeed, "the power of God to salvation" is contained therein (Romans 1:16). You need the power that can change your life not just for the better, but for the best! God's word, because it is God's word, holds that power.
