God changes lives..

God is present in power in the church, changing lives and enabling an obedience that would otherwise be unattainable. The Holy Spirit is not a theological abstraction but the manifestation of God’s presence in the community, making everything new. Those who respond to the gospel have entered the sphere of the Spirit’s power, where they find themselves change and empowered for obedience.

Richard B. Hays, The Moral Vision of the New Testament (T & T Clark, 1997)
