Holy Spirit:
Work of the Holy Spirit in a Christian's Life
Bible study on the Holy Spirit: Christian's life.

1 Cor. 12:13

We are baptized (i.e., immersed) into the body by the Spirit.

1 Cor. 6:19; Gal. 4:6-7; Eph. 2:22; 3:16

The Spirit dwells in us.

Gal. 3:2-9; Eph. 3:16- 17

Christians receive the Spirit by the hearing of faith. The Spirit dwells in Christians through faith.

2 Cor. 1:21-22; Eph. 1:13-14

We are sealed by the Holy Spirit. We grieve the Holy Spirit when we sin (Eph. 4:30).

A "seal" is a mark of identification and ownership denoting security by the owner upon that which is sealed.

2 Cor. 1:21-22; Eph. 1:13-14

The Holy Spirit is given to Christians as a guarantee (a deposit, earnest) of their inheritance.

A "guarantee" (deposit, earnest) is a pledge, a guarantee.

Rom. 8:1-17

We walk according to the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus.

The Spirit leads through the word (2 Tim. 3:16-17; Rom. 10:17; Rom. 1:16; Heb. 3:7). The result of being led by the Spirit is bearing the fruit of the Spirit (Gal. 5:16-26; Eph. 5:9).

2 Cor. 3:18

The Holy Spirit transforms Christians by the renewing of their minds (Rom. 12:1-2) in knowledge (Col. 3:10).

Eph. 3:14-19

The Holy Spirit strengthens our inner man when we know the love of Christ.

Rom. 8:26-28

The Holy Spirit helps in our weaknesses; when we are unable to pray, the Spirit intercedes.

Rom. 8:1-13

The law of the Spirit of life frees us from the law of sin and death.

The law of the Spirit is synonymous with the law of faith (Rom. 8:2; 3:27). The law of faith is revealed in the word (Rom. 1:16; 10:17; 2 Tim. 3:16-17).

Eph. 2:18

We have access to God through Christ by the Holy Spirit.

Rom. 8:16-17

The Holy Spirit bears witness with our spirit that we are sons of God.

The Spirit bears witness through the word (Heb. 10:15- 17) and our spirit bears witness to our life. When both witnesses are compared, we are revealed to be children of God or children of the devil (cf. 1 Jn. 3:10).

First John was written that we may know that we have eternal life (1 Jn. 5:13). We compare our lives to God's word thus having the witness in ourselves (1 Jn. 5:10).

If we believe (1 Jn. 5:10), we keep God's commandments (1 Jn. 5:3). Thus, the witness within ourselves is that we have eternal life (1 Jn. 513).
