What To Do When Change Comes

May 5

Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Hebrews 13:7-8

I remember back in 1965 when our church got its very first drum set. Up until then, all we had was a piano and an organ. Well, I thought we were going to have to put cardiac arrest equipment in the foyer. And the interesting thing is I was the drummer… so I heard the worst of it!

“How could you bring that instrument into the house of God?” one lady asked. Another said, “It’s terrible that our church has come to this!” Well, after some time passed and some very delicate conversations took place, we kept the drum set.

Today, drums are commonplace in many churches, and most people don’t think twice about them. But the battle over drums in my church was just an example of the different perspectives that are present in any church. It may be instruments, preaching style, or carpet color, but each of us comes into church with a pre-conceived idea of how things “should” be.

But the reality is that we’re not always going to get our way and, at times, will have to acquiesce to change. So while you may have a different background than others in your church, keep the main thing the main thing. Stay unified in the Body and work together to worship and serve the Lord!

KEEP UNITY THE FOCUS IN THE BODY, EMBRACE CHANGE, AND WORK TOGETHER IN THE SERVICE OF CHRIST!
