    A person won’t change until they’re ready to. Every Sunday messages are preached and yet people still refuse to respond to God. Instead of building their relationship with God, a lot of people give money to false preachers who claim that God will bless those who give to them. Even though Jesus Christ allowed himself to be nailed to a cross for our sake, things haven’t changed since the beginning; we’re still focused on what we want for ourselves and not what God wants for us.
