The transformative work of the Holy Spirit should be so radical in the lives of Christians that an interest in Christ is awakened in those seeking and questioning the reality of God.
To be attractive to others, Christians must live agreeably with God. Our lives are to be “sound in faith, in love and in endurance” (Titus 2:2). If we are to be strong and healthy in our faith we must trust the Father as the Son trusted the Father. Even in His darkest hour on the cross the Son could still exclaim, “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him” (Job 13:15 KJV).
In love we are to submit to the divine will of God with the help of our Savior so we can say, “not my will, but thine be done” (Luke 22:42).
When with patience and through faith we surrender our lives to the transformative work and teaching of the Holy Spirit we become image bearers of Christ. Therefore, let your attitude be the same as that of Christ Jesus (Philippians 2:5).
When Christians live transformed lives Christ’s nature abiding in us will attract men. “But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself” (John 12:32).
