What is your view of the ministry of the Holy Spirit in your life and ministry? The Holy Spirit brings regeneration in our lives. We are born again, our old fleshy lives are dead and our new spiritual life is born. When the Holy Spirit dwells in the believer, it gives them new desires, new passions. This has massive implications for how you teach too, without this view of the Spirit your teaching becomes legalism.
What are your deepest desires? What do you want most?
Is it to love and serve Jesus, love others, be faithful to your wife, committed to your kids?
Or are your deepest desires to disobey, sin, be unfaithful. If so then the Spirit is not present.
When you sin do you get frustrated, that is the spirit at work in conviction. wanting your deepest desires not the fleeting desires of the flesh.
The result of the ministry of the Holy Spirit is Joy in your life.
