The Holy Spirit works in the lives of unbelievers to convict them of their sin and accept Jesus as their personal lord and saviour. He also work continually in the lives of believers after their salvation. He helps them to possess the fruit of Hiis Spirit in which people see as an evidence in their life’s that they are truly born again.
Indwelling Of the Holy Spirit
Immediately after you accept the gospel by faith, the Holy Spirit comes into you (your spirit). The Holy Spirit works in you to keep you in righteousness through Holiness.
It’s the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in you that will take you to heaven. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit helps you to produce fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” (NIV)
Infilling of the Holy Spirit
It is not enough for you to have the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, you need the Infilling of the Holy Spirit if you want to fulfill purpose.
Acts 2:1-4 “When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place. Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit enabled them.” (NIV)
Acts 10:38 “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him.”(NIV)
Before Jesus started His ministry, He needed to first be baptised with the Holy Spirit. We only receive power after the Holy Spirit comes upon us (Acts 1:8). That was why Jesus told His disciples to tarry until the Holy Spirit comes upon them before they start witnessing the gospel.
you need both the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and the infilling of the Holy Spirit for an effectual Christian race.
The Holy Spirit gives you Revelation and clarity of the Word of God: Bishop David ibiyomie said
“When the Holy Spirit gives you understanding, you become outstanding in life.”
He is the one that helps you to hear what God is saying by interpreting it to you”. Many believers are confused and frustrated in life because they don’t activate the presence of the Holy Spirit by seeking his help consistently. The Holy Spirit helps you to see the hidden treasures in the word of God because the truth about life lies in the word of God. When studying his word, make it a duty to always ask him for revelation and clarity.
The Holy Spirit helps us to Pray. Rom 8:26-27
“Like wise the spirit also helps us in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the spirit himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. Now He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the spirit is, because he makes intercession for the saints according to the will of God”
He helps us to pray when we are weak. He makes intercession for us, He helps you to pray when you feel you don’t even know what to pray about because he knows the way to the presence of God.
1 Corinthians 2:11 “For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.” (NIV)
You can’t have access to the Holy Spirit if you’ve not accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and saviour. He can’t help you if you don’t know Him, He only help those He knows their identities.
If you want to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and saviour kindly say the following prayer:
Lord Jesus, come into my life, I believe you died and resurrected for me. Write my name in the book of life and blot out all my sins. Thank you Lord.
If you’ve have said the following prayer, I congratulate you, welcome to the family of Christ. I assure you that you have the Holy Spirit and He will help you in the journey of your Christian walk.
