From Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend’s How People Grow.

The best way to think about the Holy Spirit and growth is to think about a moment-by-moment relationship of dependency on him…But all this happens in an “abiding” sort of way. We yield to him and follow. We open up our hearts and beings to be “filled” with him. We ask him to invade all that we are and to work in us. In a sense, we give ourselves to him as we live out the life of growth.
