John Stott suggests a ‘5-D’ summary of the steps in the sanctifying activity of the Holy Spirit:-
1. The Holy Spirit operates first in our mind, enabling us to discern the will of God;
2. Then in our conscience, enablish us to distinguish between right and wrong;
3. Next in our heart, enablish us to desire God’s way ardently;
4. Then in our will, enablish us to determine resolutely to follow God’s will;
5. Only then can we do his will.
