We have one method to inspire the world to believe in Jesus…love. The body of Christ loving one another to the degree that unbelievers are drawn to God is the way of the Kingdom. Loving the world to the point that God’s goodness draws them to repentance is the way of the Kingdom. Sure the gifts are available to manifest through every believer but the motivation for such power is also love. That’s it, love.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed (changed, transfigured) by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2 No amount of physical effort can produce spiritual transformation. Your spirit doesn’t grow, it’s either righteous and made one with God or it’s not.
