Character -- -- Spirituality part II

Continuing with my post Spirituality, which is a few posts down, I was talking about how different spirits can affect us. Take an example of the spirit of drug, first it comes as a suggestion, then temptation, then you follow that suggestion and put it into action. And the spirit gained an access. Every time you give in to this spirit and do what it wants, which is to take a drug, the spirit gets a bit stronger. If you keep giving in without willfully stopping it, eventually this spirit gains a possesion. Then giving up the drugs becomes a big problem, and you become addicted. Now this is a bad one.
On the other way, it works the same with the Holy Spirit. But the difference is the Holy Spirit will not tempt us, or lie to us, but He will invite. It's actually probably harder to follow the invitation than the temptation. But every time we yield to the Holy Spirit and do what He wants, the Holy Spirit grows stronger in us. Well, the first time we need to invite Him to come, and He will if we ask. So every time we do something according to His will, we'd allow the Holy Spirit to gain more control over us. And eventually it won't be a struggle any more to do good, you just have to do His will, you become "addicted" to the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit gains control over our will, and our character becomes like His.
And this process can be called the character building process.
A big difference is if you follow the bad spirit, you'll always be traded and accompanied with guilt and shame, but if you follow the Holy Spirit, you'll be rewarded with overflowing joy and greater annointing.
