All these words describe a life that is genuine. When Christ is the center of our lives we become consistent with our actions. We become predictable in our responses. We become transparent in our life style. Outside observers will look on and say as they did about the disciples, “these men have been with Jesus.” The Word of God will come alive in our lives so much that our lives will speak louder than our words. No one will have to second guess us. We will be a genuine reflection of Christ wherever we go.

The Word of God is what makes this transformation possible. Nothing outside of the Word of God will transform us because God causes the transformation of the seed of His Word that we sow in our lives. He alone can bring forth fruit from His Word. God can help us to have a consistent character that becomes predictable and transparent. All that will be reflected from our lives is Christ the Savior of mankind.
