God transforms people through the power of the Holy Spirit and the truth of God’s word. Each believer must respond to God’s word and follow the Lord’s instruction which is a must through the empowering of God within the narrow road follower of Jesus. Changes are drastic with God in charge, and changing the way we think by letting go of the money we cling to reveals Christ-like character like no other.
“And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all he has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship him. Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.” Romans 12:1-2 (NLT)
