There is goodness and evil, light and darkness, and NO middle ground.
Holy laws from God's Word are a heads-up from the love of God. 'This is the way that things are,' God states, to help us.
If someone stays within Holy law, certain things happen, and outside of Holy law, other things happen. God is explicit in His Word to the details of each.
Doing things outside of Holy law not only on the spot hurt someone with an immediate invitation of sly subtle slick evil spirits. The spirits can be cunning and difficult to detect at times, and the person breaking Holy law has volunteered being a vessel of Satan to destroy their family, friends, and those in who they influence.
Going against Holy law can yield being a vessel destroying health, finance, relationships, peace, and more, including eternal destinies. When someone conducts the highest commandments to love, including by having gratitude - by sincerely trying to adhere to the gift of the Word, adhering to independent manifestations from the Spirit of God, and adhering to the Spirit of God via prayer - they are open to receiving and being a vessel of LIGHT to their family and friends.
The Holy Spirit comes and goes with His will. There is without a particular formula that will bring the Holy Spirit of God upon someone, although someone can ask. However, by being open to adhering to the Word of God and the Spirit of God, which are one and the same, someone is in the least, open to the Holy Spirit, to receive and learn to be qualified to use additional blessings.
Someone can only understand and adhere to the Word by having a two-fold surrender of oneself and one's path in life to Jesus. Accordingly to how much someone loves their family and friends, is accordingly to how much desire that they will have in wanting to radiate and emanate LIGHT to them - by praying and 'COMPLETELY' giving their life to Jesus.
John 8:12 Then spoke Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: He that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
