“Much of the American church has abandoned the idea that people’s desires need to be transformed.

Instead, we try to figure out what people desire, and then we tell them that Jesus is the way to get it. That’s how we get people to come to our churches.

But we rarely get to the place where we point out that what we should desire most is Jesus Himself.”
