Lord, we live in a world, filled with unbelief and disobedience.
We see it everywhere we look - but, more disturbingly, we see it in ourselves.
Everywhere we look, there are traps. There are pitfalls.
They're out there - out there in "the big, bad world."
Is it just "the world" that needs to be changed?
No, Lord - we need to be changed.
We can't change ourselves. We need to be changed by You, Lord.
We try to change ourselves - but we don't really change very much.
Is there a way in which we can be changed - really changed?
Real change comes from You, Lord.
Real change comes from this: "the blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from all sin" (1 John 1:7).
