Why does God infuse the Holy Spirit within those who trust in Jesus as Messiah?

Why does our Heavenly Father, by covenant promise, infuse His Holy Spirit into the heart of the redeemed in Messiah Jesus? (Ezekiel 36:27; Ephesians 1:13-14; Jeremiah 31:31-34; John 14:16-17)

The Law that is infused into the heart of the redeemed in Jesus Christ by covenant promise is the Holy Spirit who indwells them as Guarantor of Covenant Relationship, forever (Ephesians 1:13-14). The Holy Spirit takes the will of the Father and anoints the redeemed with wisdom and discernment which is exercised through the conscience via the daily process of sanctification (Galatians 5:16; John 14:26; 1 John 2:27).

The indwelling Holy Spirit makes the Father’s will understandable, applicable, and the Spirit intercedes in every single moral decision made by the redeemed in Christ, everyday, every second of the day (Galatians 5:16)…something the written code could never do as the written code does not address every moral decision encountered daily and the written code is subject to rationalization, obfuscation, by the sin-nature (Romans 8:1-8).

The Spirit’s anointing in the redeemed (2 Corinthians 5:17) working through the conscience is an infinitely superior form of behavioral modification over the Old Covenant’s written code that demanded perfection from the sin-nature that simply could not comply in mandated perfection (Romans 8:1-6; James 2:10; Galatians 3:10).

It is the indwelling Holy Spirit and His work of sanctification in the redeemed that prepares the faithful in Jesus for eternal service in the coming New Jerusalem, something the written code could never accomplish.
