The transforming power of the Spirit!
(J. C. Ryle, "The Lord's Garden")
"To all those in Rome who are loved by God
and called to be saints." Romans 1:7
Believers are separated from the world by the
effectual working of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit
calls them out from the world, and separates
them as effectually as if a wall were built
between them and it. He puts in them . . .
He gives them . . .
He makes them new creatures. They are born
again--and with a new birth they begin a new
existence. Mighty indeed is the transforming
power of the Spirit!
