Change and reformation

Can you think of anyone you know who wouldn't like to change something in his or her life? I can't. And what about our own lives? Do we need any changes, any growth, any progress? Of course. Even the happiest, healthiest, most secure, most upright people surely have areas in their experience or their character that could be improved.

Many, however, even while accepting the need to change their lives—even wanting to change—honestly wonder how it can actually be accomplished. There are a multitude of self-help books, television and radio talk shows, personal encounter groups, counseling sessions, all offering well-meaning advice. Still, people hunger for something deeper, something that really gets to the heart of the issue. They yearn for something that provides more than cosmetic changes and that radically transforms the way they feel and think about themselves and the world. They want to be new people.
