The Gospel of Jesus Christ is not a self-improvement plan. The Bible is not a self-help text. When a person is born again, God transforms them into new creatures; He does not merely patch up the damaged goods. God does everything for us; all we can do is agree with God that we need His help, and then submit to His Spirit as He re-makes us in His image. Please open your Bible to Second Peter chapter one, and listen as Pastor Ray Viola completes his discussion of verses one through four.
