Congregations seeking to transform often are trying hard to transform and it is not working for them. These are the congregations who believe if they push or work harder they will transform. They miss the crucial issue that they need to be pulled forward by God and work smarter in order to transform.
Their dependency is on themselves and their own efforts. They believe they know the answer to congregational transformation and that it is about them rather than being about God. They want God to follow them rather than them following God. They lack essential dependency on the Holy Spirit.
