God’s Methods for Christianising Our Modern World

"There is required an actual influence of the same Holy Spirit to work in them to will and to do of His good pleasure.   Philippians 2:12f & 4:13; Second Corinthians 3:5.   Yet are they not hereupon to grow negligent, as if they were not bound to perform any duty unless upon a special motion of the Spirit!   But they ought to be diligent in stirring up the grace of God that is in them…, the Spirit of Christ subduing and enabling the will of man to do that freely and cheerfully which the will of God revealed in the Law requireth to be done.   Hebrews 6:11f; Second Peter 1:3-11; Isaiah 64:7; Second Timothy 1:6; Acts 26:6f; Jude 20f; Ezekiel 36:27; Hebrews 8:10; Jeremiah 31:33."   Come, O Spirit, and keep on stirring us up!
