In Quest of Christians, Change, and the Cross


What I don’t understand about myself 
is that I decide one way, but then I act another, 
doing things I absolutely despise.
~The Apostle Paul
Romans 7:14

Sometimes Christians forget how difficult it is to change ourselves...do we really ever succeed at that?   We sure can't change others!

It rarely does any good to tell others how to live, we show them by example.  Actions shout, but words are mere whispers!

When a person accepts Jesus Christ as his or her personal savior, it is then the Holy Spirit's job to cleanse them and change their desires.  No one can cleanse themselves and then come to Christ.  If we could do that, there would be no need for the cross!
