Filled with the Holy Spirit

Text: "Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit." Ephesians 5:18

Over the years in hundreds of churches I have usually closed my ministry series with a message entitled, Six Conditions for the Filling of the Holy Spirit. (See article online at www.kneillfoster.com) Some times everyone, or nearly everyone, in the congregation moved to the altar. But not always.

I remember a congregation so flippant about the Holy Spirit and His work that I could not bring myself to deliver the message. On yet another occasion in Mexico, the pastor's daughter refused to come to the service to hear the message about "la plenitud del Espiritu Santo" (The Filling of the Holy Spirit). She had been terrorized by weird and eccentric preaching about the Holy Spirit.

Let's review what the Scriptures tell us about the Holy Spirit:

  • The Holy Spirit is God.
  • The fruit of the Spirit includes love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness and goodness.
  • The Holy Spirit is the Heavenly Gentleman if ever there was one.
  • He is the Comforter who has come to abide with us.
  • He continuously lifts up and exalts the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment.

The single greatest need of any Christian is to know and experience the fullness of the Holy Spirit. Are you filled with the Holy Spirit? Do you know it?

How much more shall the Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those that continually ask Him?
