An Ethic of the Holy Spirit

The Christian is a person who is dependent upon the work of the Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 3:3,6). The Holy Spirit not only brings about the regeneration and conversion ('new birth ') of the individual, but He enables the believer to live in victory over the sinful nature and thereby do what is right in God's eyes.

He is the means of empowerment of the entire life of the Christian because He lives within the believer and is his personal helper and guide (John 16:12-15). Any system of ethics which minimises the role of the Holy Spirit in the fulfilment of what is right and the avoidance of what is wrong has failed to underline the means by which all 'good' conduct must be motivated and empowered. Without the Spirit's enablement it would be impossible to please God.
