He draws us through His love and kindness;
we respond by learning to know Him through study and prayer.

He convicts of sin, righteousness, and judgement, producing guilt;
we acknowledge our guiltiness without blaming others.

He gives us repentance, producing true heart sorrow for sin;
we confess with contrite hearts, surrendering all rights to self and sin.

He forgives and cleanses from all sin and creates a new heart and mind;
we believe and experience cleansing and renewal.

He dwells in us through the Holy Spirit, energizing us to do His will;
we act out what He works in, which results in fruit to His glory.

He alerts us when tempted, and empowers us to resist the tempter;
we submit to Him and resist through His power, gaining the victory.

He will be our Advocate and plead for us if we should fall;
we repent and turn back to Him so He can restore us to Himself.

Through Christ God has worked out our complete salvation.
