In His Deeper Work in Us, the importance of seeking the control and the infilling of the Holy Spirit is viewed as the key to living the victorious Christian life. Accordingly, Dr. Baxter states that "the New Testament emphasis is not so much on our being ridded of something (though that is necessarily included), but rather on being filled with a spiritual vitality and health that leaves the sin-disease no environment in which to thrive." Drawing upon the writings of such stalwarts of the faith as D. L. Moody, Hannah Whitall Smith, Frances Ridley Havergal, A. T. Pierson, Samuel Chadwick, and others, Dr. Baxter discusses this all-important step in the Christian walk through both experience and Scripture.
