The primary and foremost work of the Holy Spirit when He comes to reside in us is to conform us to the image of the Son of God, Jesus Christ. Many Christians especially in the charismatic community seek the Lord primarily for the gifts and the anointing of the Holy Spirit. But besides the nine gifts/manifestations of the Holy Spirit that are found in 1 Corinthians 12, we are also instructed about the nine fruits of the Holy Spirit that are found in the book of Galatians chapter 5. More important than what we can do for God is who we are in God.
“For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the first born among many brethren.” (Romans 8:29)
