WHAT IS THE WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT?
Once you are saved Eph 1:13 you are sealed with that holy Spirit of promise. The word sealed here is the same as the permanant seal affixed to a document (usually on a scroll) that would have to be broken in order to unroll the document and read it.
The Holy Spirit comforts us and helps our memory; John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Luke 12 For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what you ought to say. (learn to be sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit)
There are many ways that the Holy Spirit works in the lives of Christians, but they all share one common goal: to make us more like Jesus Christ. He works in believers by renewing our minds to be like the mind of Christ. He does this by convicting us of sin and leading us to repentance.
Galatians 5:22-23 informs us: “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
