The Power of Holy Spirit
I believe that this redemption is applied to believers by the Holy Spirit. Sent by the Father and the Son, the Holy Spirit glorifies Jesus Christ, regenerates spiritually dead sinners, convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and in him they are baptized into union with the Lord Jesus. By the Spirit’s activity, believers are renewed, sanctified, and adopted into God’s family. The Holy Spirit seals believers unto the day of final redemption and is the down payment for those who have received this promised inheritance. He indwells, guides, instructs, equips, revives, and empowers believers for Christ-like living and service.
