Furnishing with Light what was once Darkness

"The Holy Spirit comes to the soul and person of a Christian, applies Christ to him, brings Christ into him, makes him his temple, and a habitation of God and Christ to dwell in the heart. The Spirit comes, inhabits, sweeps, and cleanses; furnishes the heart with light, that was darkness; with truth, that was error and deceitfulness; with power, that was weakness; life, warmth and qualifications of heavenly graces, that was cold, dead, and altogether sinful; and draws the glorious image of Christ upon the soul. He enlivens, establishes, enlarges and encourages, and fills the spirit with peace and joy unspeakable"
