The gospel and the Spirit

"We must never think that the gospel can be understood by human reason alone. The reason is because an unconverted mind is darkened by sin (cf. Rom. 1:21; Eph. 4:17-18; cf. Gal. 1:13-14).

"If we, as well as others, are to hear, believe, enjoy and proclaim the gospel, we must be fully persuaded of our absolute necessity of the Holy Spirit’s illuminating and empowering work for both conversion (1 Pet. 1:3) as well as edification (Eph. 1:17-18)."
