Charles (Chuckie) III, Caleb (Charles), Aireale, Adrian, Maya, Joan, Charles Sr., and My Beloved, this week's devotion (Weeklies) is a concentration on how "change" should remain a conscience acknowledgment of inevitable divine design (devised by God) instead of commonplace defamation (injurious) or demean( diminishing character.)
Today's dominant demean and defamation within the need of "existing" evolving to "future" moment to moment, day to day, year to year, oftentimes overshadows godly purpose(s) within change (existing evolving to future.) Irrelevant of various judgments within change, change is godly purposeful and it's essential that one courts with the godly purpose(s) within change throughout it's timetable. There are four basic viewpoints that I want to biblically illustrate for the purpose of identifying "change" possessing divine purpose (devised by God) irrelevant of it's (change's) judgments:
1) Inevitably, everyone has the need to change: All mankind has the need to change due to it's (mankind's) inherited carnal nature - "Wherefore, by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned" - Romans 5:12)
2) Change is a movement from existing incompletion (existing lesser fulness of God) to greater completion (greater fulness of God): The Apostle Paul identified the need for change from the lesser fulness of God (incompletion) to greater fulness of God (greater completion). The church at Corinth change from lesser fulness of God (incompletion) to greater fulness of God (greater completion) exemplified potential sorrow, however, divine purpose (devised by God) existed within the needed change from the lesser to fuller fulness of God - "But I determined with myself, that I would not come again to you in heaviness. For if I make you sorry, who is he then that maketh me glad, but the same which is made sorry by me?" - 2 Corinthians 2:1-2
3) Change is a movement from existing completion (existing fulness of God) to greater completion (greater fulness of God): The Apostle Paul identified the need for change from existing fulness of God to greater fulness of God exemplified through his personal life (i.e. - even within the Apostle Paul's existing fulness of God, he personally identified that "he had not arrived- meaning he could be greater completed") - "Brethern, I count myself to have apprehended: but this thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus" Philippians 3:13-14
4) Irrelevant of the above judgements of change (change from lesser fulness of God to greater fulness of God or fulness of God to greater fulness of God), change is a process throughout a timetable whereby divine purpose(s) exist. The Apostle Paul expounds to the Church at Colosse to court with "change's" divinely designed process (devised by God): "And have put on the new man which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him" - Colossians 3:10
I encourage you all to remain mindful that change (irrelevant of it's various judgments) is inevitable and divinely designed (devised) by God for your God-willed fulfillment(s) and God's glory through Christ Jesus.
