Change Begins with Absolute Surrender!
Change starts with everyday people
Acts 4:13 CSB – When they observed the boldness of Peter and John and realized that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed and recognized that they had been with Jesus.
Change starts with surrender to the cross of Jesus
Romans 10:9 CSB – If you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Acts 2:38 CSB – Peter replied, ‘Repent and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Change starts when I pick up my cross daily

1 Corinthians 3:1-3 CSB – For my part, brothers and sisters, I was not able to speak to you as spiritual people but as people of the flesh, as babies in Christ. I gave you milk to drink, not solid food, since you were not yet ready for it. In fact, you are still not ready, because you are still worldly. For since there is envy and strife among you, are you not worldly and behaving like mere humans?
Matthew 6:26, 33 CSB – Consider the birds of the sky: they don’t sow or reap or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you worth more than they? Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you.
I am your perfection
Jesus is King
All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. -Jesus
