Scriptures about Change
And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature:
old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
~2 Corinthians 5:17
In whose eyes a vile person is despised,
But he honors those who fear the LORD;
He who swears to his own hurt and does not change.
They will perish, but You will endure;
Yes, they will all grow old like a garment;
Like a cloak You will change them,
And they will be changed.
And if they have a change of heart in the land where they are held captive, and repent and plead with you in the land of their conquerors and say, “We have sinned, we have done wrong, we have acted wickedly . . .”
~1 Kings 8:47
If you really change your ways and your actions and deal with each other justly, if you do not oppress the alien, the fatherless or the widow and do not shed innocent blood in this place,
and if you do not follow other gods to your own harm,
then I will let you live in this place,
in the land I gave your forefathers for ever and ever.
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let
God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
But forget all that—it is nothing compared to what I am going to do.
For I am about to do something new.
See, I have already begun! Do you not see it?
I will make a pathway through the wilderness.
I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.
Neither do men pour new wine into old wineskins.
If they do, the skins will burst, the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined.
No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.
