Sarai to Sarah is a life changing experience

Tuesday March 3rd,  Genesis 17: 15 Then God said to Abraham, "As for Sarai your wife, do not call her name Sarai. But Sarah will be her name. 16 And I will bring good to her. I will give you a son by her. I will bring good to her. And she will be the mother of nations. Kings of many people will come from her." Here is where the priestly writers during the Babylonian captivity moved from one set of stories about Abraham and Sarah from Israel to another set of stories from Judah. In the languages of the two kingdoms, they pronounced and wrote the names differently. The priests inserted these transitional phrases to move from one set of stories to another. They also explain how God can change our lives. When God enters, everything changes. You might not change your name when God enters, but God will change your heart. When your heart is changed there is no telling what can happen.  Good flows from God, but the good of God flows through the people of God.  So open the flood gates of your heart and let the God colors flow into the world.  While you watch things change in the world around you, notice the change that takes place in your heart also.
