The Spirit and Our Worship

There is the action of the Holy Spirit, apart from which the true human action of worship, the proper response of man to God’s action, would be impossible.  His is the divine action within our human action of believing and responding, of hearing the Word of God, of understanding the things of God (1Cor. 2:10-16), of confessing Jesus as Lord (1 Cor. 12:3), of knowing God as Father (Rom. 8:15 f.).

—C. E. B. Cranfield, “Divine and Human Action,” Interpretation 12:4 (October, 1958):391
