A distinguishing characteristic of Baha'i life is the
spirit of servitude to God. To labour in the arena of service, the
individual draws upon his love
for Baha'u'llah, the power of the Covenant, the dynamics of prayer, the
inspiration and education derived from regular study of the Holy Texts,
transformative forces that operate upon his soul as he strives to behave
in accordance with the divine laws and principles.
