change

19 Feb: Mission

When we think about changes that occurred throughout the church’s history, we may realize that there is always a side that holds onto a certain structure, system of thoughts, and practices and the other that likes to challenge them as they do not appear to be aligned with the “new revelation” that appears to be what the Spirit does.

However, we would also notice that these changes soon become new forms of structure, systems of thoughts, and practices. Pondering upon this pattern, we may begin to think “what is the point of any pursuit for creating changes and challenges in our attempt to be faithful to God’s word?” Especially in various seasons when the church re-evaluates and changes the current ways to be the church, we can also easily notice the same pattern occurring in the church. Where should we look to?
