If the Holy Spirit tells us that it's the Word that sanctifies us (John 17:17), then what does the Spirit do?

If the Holy Spirit tells us that the Word of God works in us (1 Thess.2:13), then what does the Spirit do?

If the Holy Spirit tells us that the gospel/Word of God establishes us (Rom.16:25), then what does the Spirit do?

If the Holy Spirit tells us that the truth – the gospel – the Word of God is what produces fruit (Col.1:5-6), then what does the Spirit do?

If the Holy Spirit tells us that our spiritual growth comes by the Word of God (1 Pet.2:1), then what does the Spirit do?

The fact is, in these passages, and in many others, the Holy Spirit (as well as God the Father, and God the Son, and the apostles) influences us through His very own word. In conviction, conversion, and sanctification, whatever the Spirit is said to do, His word does. After all ,the sword of the Spirit is the Word of God (Eph.6:17) – the very tool or means by which He uses to influence us, and in no other way does He influence us.
