Jesus had three attributes that contributed to His messages. First, He had godly character. People will listen when they witness godly character. If you don’t display godly character in your life, people will not listen to your message or testimony.
Second, Jesus had holy conduct. His conduct proved what He said was true and honest. His conduct was without flaw. Holy conduct proves what you believe. His conduct reflected what He taught.
Third, Jesus had concern for others. Because He was concerned for others salvation, people would give their attention to Him. When you show people that you care for them, they will gladly hear what you have to say.
