Christians believe that by learning and growing to be like Jesus they will learn and grow to live God's way.
However the Bible teaches that in the same way the Israelites found it impossible to keep following God's rules, without God's help Christians find it impossible to keep living like Jesus day after day. Infact the Bible teaches that it is only with the powerful help of the Holy Spirit that Christians can learn and grow to think, feel and live like Jesus.
So how does the Holy Spirit help Christians become more like Jesus?
The Bible teaches that the Holy Spirit is ‘the Helper’. Another word for helper is ‘comforter’, ‘someone who comes alongside’.
The Bible also says that the Holy Spirit is a teacher and guide.
Christians believe the Holy Spirit comes alongside to teach and guide. They believe that as the Holy Spirit works in their lives He changes them from the inside-out to become more and more like Jesus; to be more peaceful, patient and kind. As the Holy Spirit helps Christians become more like Jesus, more and more they are able to live God's way.
Christians believe that each day the Holy Spirit helps millions of people around the world become more and more like Jesus so they can learn and grow to live God’s way, the way God created them to live.
