While secular psychology offers many self-improvement techniques, none produce the transformation God desires. True heart change is only possible through new spiritual birth—becoming a new creation in Christ—which produces lasting change.
Many “experts” claim that bad behavior is not really the fault of the one who does it. The Bible says all problems (family, finances, career, relationships) can be traced to a single source: life-dominating sin. Heart change involves taking responsibility for one’s own actions, not blaming others.
Sincere repentance is a process involving five aspects that blend into a genuine spiritual turnaround. Five prayers illustrate this process:
- “God, I am wrong.”
- “I am sorry.”
- “Forgive me.”
- “Cleanse me.”
- “Empower me.”
