Practical Christianity - When The Holy Spirit Approaches A Heart
"It is not simply that the Holy Spirit approaches a heart in which there is no love for God, but He finds it filled with enmity against Him.....And nothing but the almighty power of the Spirit can overcome that enmity and bring any rebel truly to love the God of Holy Writ."

Rom 8:6 For the mind set on the flesh is death,
Eph 2:3 Among them we too all formerly lived in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, even as the rest.
Eph 2:4 But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us,
Eph 2:5 even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
