As soon as a person is saved, the Holy Spirit begins this work — arrangements, ordering, discipline.
But a period of time has to lapse before he can gain full liberty through this work.
When does the Holy Spirit have the full liberty?
It is when we consecrate ourselves.
The day that a man is saved is the day that the Holy Spirit begins the disciplining work, and the day that he consecrates himself is the day that the Holy Spirit has the full freedom to perform such a work.
After a man is saved and before he is consecrated, he still loves himself dearly and has little love for the Lord.
One cannot say that the Holy Spirit is not disciplining him; He does order things to bring him to God and to break his outer man.
But with an unconsecrated man, He does not have the full liberty to do this work.
After a man is enlightened by God and has consecrated himself to God, the Holy Spirit will have the liberty to do His work.
