Summary: Sometimes we try hard to change, but that’s God’s duty not ours. We only surrender to his power.

God Can Change You

Sunday, May 16, 2004

Ezk. 36:24-31

INTRO.

What can you do when there is no desire for change?

What can be done to put that desire in you and how can that change come about?

The answer is: “Surrender”. Be convinced in your mind what God can do for you.

You are not responsible for and external change, but for an internal persuasion.
