A king seeks in the whole education of his son to develop in him a kingly spirit. Our Father in heaven desires to educate us as His children for the holy, heavenly life in which He dwells. For this he gives us, from the depths of His heart, His own Spirit. This was Jesus' whole aim when, after having made atonement with His own blood, He entered into God's presence to obtain for us, and send down to dwell in us, the Holy Spirit.
