Series: The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit has a vital role to play in the Christian's life. The Bible says that every believer has the Holy Spirit living within (Romans 8:9), but God's desire is for there to be a growing experience in Him. There is a definite experience of being "baptised" in the power of the Holy Spirit (read the account in Acts 19:1-7). And even after this baptism in the Holy Spirit, the believer should be continually "filled with the Spirit" (Ephesians 5:18: Acts 4:31) This "infilling" is designed to be like "a stream of living water" flowing out from within (John 7:38-39).

To receive this baptism in the Holy Spirit, like everything else with God, is very simple. All you need to do is:

you must really want to be filled with God's Spirit to overflowing.

Since it is a gift from God, not something that has to do with any feeling of worthiness, all that is required from us is to ask!

Now begin to praise God audibly and thank Him for His gift of infilling.

"So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you...Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!" Luke 11:9.11-13.
