God delivers us from the reign of sin, unites us with Christ, and gives us the indwelling Holy Spirit, who convicts us of our sin, increases our desire for holiness, and strengthens us in our pursuit of holiness. God has given us these provisions, but it is our responsibility to walk in obedience and use what we have been given. Because God provides for our holiness and we have responsibility in it as well, we are to be in pursuit of holiness.
