Ultimately, it’s a work of God’s Spirit to ignite our hearts so that we come to love Jesus and seek His kingdom. We can put ourselves in the proper posture for obedience, whether through certain practices, habits, our life in community with fellow Christians, our openness to His Word and to prayer, but we need the Spirit to fill us and to transform us. That desire should lead us to a holy desperation on the Spirit to work, and should put us on our knees in prayer and with Bibles open to hear God speak to us.
