Keep the Change

Obviously, "Keep the Change" isn't a phrase we coined ourselves, although looking at the CD cover, you could say we coined ourselves on "Keep the Change." In general, "Keep the Change" is an expression people use about something that isn't worth much. On this CD, however, "Keep the Change" connotes something that's priceless, not worthless the change that Christ makes in a person's life.

It's both an exhortation and a guarantee. The exhortation is exemplified by 2 Timothy 1:13-14 "What you have heard from me, keep as the sound pattern of teaching, with faith and love in Christ Jesus. Guard the good deposit that was entrusted to you guard it with the help of the Holy Spirit who lives in us." We are to keep the change that Christ made in us, as it says in Romans 12:1: "Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord." But the guarantee is that while we are doing our part, One who is far greater than us is doing His part to keep the change in us, as it says in 1 Corinthians 1:8 "He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ."

Of course, in ApologetiX, we change lyrics just as Christ changes lives. And we think both changes are worth keeping. Therefore, it shouldn't be surprising that there are a plenty of lyrics on this CD about how Christ changes lives. And what a change Christ makes. "Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!" (2 Corinthians 5:17) That's a quantum leap that blows away anything the evolutionists propose. The only difference is there's no real evidence for evolution, but there's plenty of evidence for both creation and the "new creation." But we'll give you our two cents' worth about that on this CD.

And what is two cents worth, anyway? Christ says in Luke 12:6: "Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows." Two copper coins. That's not worth much in our society, is it? But Jesus said that a widow who gave her two copper coins into the offering box had contributed more than everybody else. You may not feel like you're worth more than odd change to anybody, but you're priceless to God. Jesus once took a coin and told the people to render unto Caesar what was Caesar's and to render unto God what was God's. The coin was made in Caesar's image. You're made in God's image. That's why He's going to keep the change.

And that's why you're going to keep the change.
