Matthew 12:38-50

Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.

 

But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: for as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

 

The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas; and, behold, a greater than Jonas is here.

 

The queen of the south shall rise up in the judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: for she came from the uttermost parts of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, behold, a greater than Solomon is here.

 

When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none.

 

Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.

 

Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.

 

While he yet talked to the people, behold, his mother and his brethren stood without, desiring to speak with him.

 

Then one said unto him, Behold, thy mother and thy brethren stand without, desiring to speak with thee.

 

But he answered and said unto him that told him, Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?

 

And he stretched forth his hand toward his disciples, and said, Behold my mother and my brethren!

 

For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

 


 

So often we are inspired to great change through revival orsome cataclysmic event. If we do not fill the void left by the sin we are so eager to expunge; with the word, doing for others, and daily prayer, that void can be filled with worse sins. Change does not happen over night and true change can only occur through prayer, commitment, and hard work. God wants us to be the people we want to be. That is why he gave us the gift of free will.
