This deals with the work of God done in man by the Spirit. It is important that we trace the office and work of the Third Person of the Trinity.  The crowning work of the Holy Spirit is entire sanctification or Christian perfection.  The purifying and perfecting gift of the Holy Spirit is a distinguishing tenet within the Wesleyan tradition.

Relational Holiness: Core and Contributing Notions By Thomas Oord and Michael Lodahl

Thomas Jay Oord
Michael Lodahl

The classical terms of holiness – “Christian Perfection,” “Entire Sanctification,” “The Second Blessing,”
and “Baptism of the Holy Spirit” – no longer seize the imaginations of many people. Evidence of this
is found chiefly in the fact that Christian leaders both inside and outside the holiness tradition rarely
use these terms today. Lay people use them even less. Perhaps we in the holiness tradition are
becoming like the Myanmar pygmies.
