Quote for the Week
"Transformation is the special work of the Holy Spirit. God chose us 'to be saved by the sanctifying work of the Spirit and through belief in the truth' (2 Thessalonians 2:13). We 'have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by his blood' (1 Peter 1:2). There was a time when electronic toys often said 'Batteries not inbcluded'. You opened your long-awaited Christmas present only to find you couldn't make it work. The gospel is a gift that comes with 'batteries included'. God gives us power through the Holy Spirit to make our new life work. John Berridge put it like this:
Run, John, and work, the law commands,
Yet finds me neither feet nor hands;
But sweeter news the gospel brings,
It bids me fly and lends me wings."
Tim Chester, You Can Change (Nottingham: IVP, 2008), p. 58
