Days of Behavior Modification are Over

Recently at one of my speaking engagements I announced that the days of behavior modification are over. The church has long depended upon and stumbled at surface management--behavior modification without heart transformation. We love to massage the old man, enable people who are trying to reform the flesh, and, while proclaiming we're people of the Spirit, put a new form of law on people called performance. We must go beyond the false yoke we have put on people for all these years. Christ didn't die so we could strive and try and hope to be in alignment with Him. He died to perform a finished work, one that is the privilege of every believer to access. He died so we could die, and His life manifest within us. To Kill a Lion tells about my journey out of behavior modification, a journey I'll never return to--thank the blessed Lord Jesus!
