Evidence of the Holy Spirit’s Work Within a Believer

Out of his [John Newton] extensive pastoral experience, he observed that one mark of a Christian moving from infanthood to greater maturity was a work of the Holy Spirit within the believer that enabled them to stop doubting their salvation when they sinned and trust more fully in the finished work of Christ on their behalf.  He also believed that the richest of  God’s work in our hearts would be evidenced by increasing humility and dependence on Christ for everything, rather than in a “victorious Christian life.”
