The world believes conduct determines character. For example, the world believes if you act good and perform good deeds, it is a reflection of your character. In one of William Barclay's Bible commentaries, he writes that a man who seems to be good may actually be a bad man and a man who seems to be bad may actually be a good man. This is so true. Our character determines our conduct, according to what I learned in Dr. Warren Wiersbe's Bible commentaries. Our characters are a reflection of our true natures. Nothing but the Holy Spirit can transform our characters; not counselling, not higher education - nothing but the spirit of God who indwells us only when we receive Christ Jesus as our personal Lord and savior. When men place their trust in Christ's completed work at the cross, character changes occur. If not, men are dead in their sins, hopelessly lost, facing a Christless eternity in hell which is separation from Christ Jesus forever.
