The Changed Life (3 of 7)
-- just the theology of change. We all want change, right? We want some fundamental things in our life to change. That's why I came to Jesus. I needed some things to change. The world tells us how to change. It gives us the secret to change. What's the secret to change? It's to find the strength within you, the inner good. And if you just focus on that, you think about it, but the secret to change is within you. And the problem is that's just not true. And the Bible tells us it's not true.

So if you're new to our church, you're unconvinced, you're not so sure that, you know -- you're not convinced that the Bible's true, that Jesus is who He says He is. This is a great weekend for you to be here because you're going to see what God says is the secret to change ...
