“He Made a Change”
 
I invite you to read the following scriptures.
Matthew 9:9-13
9 As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him.
10 While Jesus was having dinner at Matthew’s house, many tax collectors and “sinners” came and ate with him and his disciples.
 
11 When the Pharisees saw this, they asked his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and ‘sinners’?”
 
12 On hearing this, Jesus said, “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.
13 But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
 
Meeting Jesus changed Matthew forever.
Meetings with Christ are life changers.
 
He stands ready to accept us where we are and then changes us through His Holy Spirit into the followers He wants us to be.
 
There is a song that talks about this.
Feel free to sing along.
 
“He Made a Change”
When Paul met the Lord on Damascus Road
He never was the same again
When Peter met the Lord He left his boat
And started fishing for men
Well, I may not be Peter or Paul,
But one thing I can truly say
When I met the Lord and made Him my choice
He definitely made a change
 
(He made a change) He made a change in the way that I’m walking
(He made a change) He made a change in the way that I’m talking
Old things pass away, behold everything’s new
(He made a change) He made a change in the life that I’m living
I’m born again, set free, finally forgiven
If He can make a change in me, He can make a change in you
 
Well, well, well I’ve seen some old friends shaking their heads
‘Cause they never thought they’d see the day
When a sinner like me would praise the Lord
Or bow my head to pray
Well, I’m not what I used to be
You see my life has been rearranged
Well there’s nothing that I’ve done, but I have found someone
Who definitely made a change
 
(He made a change) He made a change in the way that I’m walking
(He made a change) He made a change in the way that I’m talking
Old things pass away, behold everything’s new
(He made a change) He made a change in the life that I’m living
I’m born again, set free, finally forgiven
If He can make a change in me, He can make a change in you
 
(He made a change) He made a change in the way that I’m walking
(He made a change) He made a change in the way that I’m talking
I say, old things pass away, behold everything’s new, yeah, yeah
(He made a change) He made a change in the life that I’m living
I’m born again, set free, finally forgiven
If He can make a change in me, He can make a change in you
 
I know if He can make a change in me, He can make a change in you
I say, if He can make a change in me, He can make a change
(He made a change) He made a change in me
(He made a change) He made a change in me
I know, if He can make a change in me, He can make a change in you
(He made a change) He made a change
