Jesus Will Change Us When We Ask Him

Oct 1, 2022

People often reject the gospel because they would rather rely on good advice for what they need to do rather than receive good news about what Jesus will do for them.  Humans love self-help strategies that promise you can fix yourself until they inevitably find that these strategies don’t actually help self.  Well-meaning sayings like toughen up, lighten up, buck up and cheer up are just a set up that make us want to give up.  Real, lasting change will only come when we ask God to begin and complete His good work in us so we can live by His power.  He’s ready, willing and able to do it if we’ll stop trying to do it ourselves.
