How? The Holy Ghost!

Under the Old Testament we know the Holy Spirit often came upon men as a divine Spirit of revelation to reveal the mysteries of God. But, He did not dwell in them, then. Now, many just want the Old Testament gift of power for work. But, they know very little of the New Testament gift of the indwelling Spirit, animating and renewing the whole life. When God gives the Holy Spirit, His great object is the formation of a holy character. It is a gift of a holy mind and spiritual disposition, and we need, above everything else, to say; “I must have the Holy Spirit sanctifying my whole inner life if I am really to live for God’s glory.”

Quoted from Absolute Surrender by Andrew Murray
