They (recipients) have a greater “Awe” of the Purity and Holiness of God and become conscious of a need to not grieve the Holy Spirit.

There came a sound from heaven, as of a ________ mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.” Acts2:1-2

19. “But truly I am full of power by the Spirit of the Lord, and of justice and might, To declare to Jacob His transgression and to ______ his sin.” Micah3:8

It is on our work clothes as well as church clothes.
