There are two mistakes we can make as we seek spiritual change. One is anxiety; the other is passivity. In this message, we consider the Bible’s command to reject passivity and embrace the role of human effort in the process of change.
In order to be hopeful and encouraged in the work of change, we must embrace God's promise that He is at work in us. We are not alone in the work of change; God is changing us through the presence of the Holy Spirit.
Real change is more than behavior modification. According to Jesus, just like a tree is known by its fruit, our actions reveal our hearts. In this sermon, we consider 3 of Jesus' timeless insights about the human heart.
Christians sometimes assume Jesus changes us dramatically and instantaneously. But the Bible teaches that spiritual transformation is usually slow, ordinary, and incremental.
