Every person who comes to you for help is not always interested in being free from their problems. Just because they are sharing their trouble with you does not mean they want to change. This issue is a common occurrence, and there are reasons they do not change.

The number of people who want to change is smaller than you may think. Sometimes we forget this as we make our appeals–especially to those we love the most. Though at some level of their hearts they may want to live a different kind of life, too often they choose what is familiar because change is hard.

Biblical repentance is hard for all of us. It is like trying to lose weight or trying to quit smoking. What is that one annoying thing you want to change, but have not been able to transform yet? How many of us have tried, but found the discipline and will to rid ourselves of bad habits is harder than we first perceived?
Lack - Change - Counseling - Outcome - Problem
A lack of change is a common counseling outcome. If you do not understand this problem, you may become frustrated with people who stay stuck in their problems (Galatians 6:1-2).
Even so, God’s grace is sufficient for anyone to mature in Christ (Philippians 4:13). There are no problems that are beyond the scope of His grace (1 Corinthians 10:13). To say or think your set of problems are different and you cannot change is to deny the power of Christ’s death, resurrection, ascension, and mediation (Romans 1:16).
Imagine - Christ - Excuse
Imagine trying to persuade Christ with an excuse for not changing. What could we say?
Your grace was not enough.
You should have done more.
