If my heart is the source of my sin problem, then lasting change must always travel through the pathway of my heart. It is not enough to alter my behaviour or to change my circumstances. Christ transforms people by radically changing their hearts. If the heart doesn’t change, the person’s words and behaviour may change temporarily because of an external pressure or incentive. But when the pressure or incentive is removed, the changes will disappear.

~ Paul David Tripp
