If we are struggling to succeed in life, it may be because of character issues. Upright morals are essential to success; no one can rise above their character. The way we behave and the actions we demonstrate reflect what is inside of us; godly character is displayed when we do what is right even when no one is watching. For born-again believers, character is a manifestation of Jesus in our lives. Regardless of any good intentions we may have, we will never be able to have a character that is pleasing to God without help from the Holy Spirit. All we need to do to begin seeing positive changes in us is to get out of God’s way and yield to the Spirit, who accepts the responsibility for our transformation. Cooperating with Him allows Him to develop the same characteristics as Christ, Himself.
