The Holy Spirit works within us, but He does not cancel our freedom.
He leads us to do good, but He doesn’t force us.
He gives us strength and we are still free to choose whether or not to use it.
If anyone lives in complete obedience to the Holy Spirit and in strong fellowship with Him,
he should be a saint and grow to the highest degree of holiness.
However, many times one does the opposite and takes negative attitudes towards the Holy Sprit.
