The Work of the Spirit in the Church
A Sermon on Ephesians 4:4-6
There is one body and one Spirit—just as you were called to the one hope that belongs to your call—one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all. (ESV)
The Holy Spirit enable the Lord to function; one Holy Spirit; but a multiplicity of evil spirits; the Church likened to a building; the visible Church contains many who are unregenerate; the first work of the Spirit; conviction of sin; the second work of the Spirit; incorporating the new believer into the body of Christ : the Church; the Spirit animates the life of the whole body.
