The Holy Spirit communicates the great, permanent, positive effect of holiness to the souls of believers and he guides and assists them in all acts works and duties of holiness…Herein, consists the image of God whereunto our natures are repaired by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, whereby we are made conformable unto God, firmly, steadfastly adhering to him through faith and love.

—John Owen
