Renovation of the Heart: Putting on the Character of Christ (audio)


Hovel Audio 2005

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


As Christians, we know that we are new creations in Jesus, so we try to act differently, hoping this will makes us more like him. But changing our outward behavior doesn’t change our hearts. Only by God’s grace can we be transformed internally.

Renovation of the Heart lays a biblical foundation for understanding what best-selling author Dallas Willard calls the “transformation of the spirit”—a divine process that “brings every element in our being, working from the inside out, into harmony with the will of God.” This fresh approach to spiritual growth explains the biblical reasons by Christians need to undergo change in six aspects of life: thought, feeling, will, body, social context, and soul. Willard also outlines a general pattern of transformation in each area, not as a sterile formula but rather as a practical process that can be followed without the guilt or perfectionism so many Christians wrestle with.

Don’t settle for complacency. Accept the challenge Renovation of the Heart offers to become an intentional apprentice of Jesus Christ, changing daily as you walk with him.
