Scriptures: Ephesians 5:18-21, John 4:24
Christian should be filled with the Holy Spirit, and every Christian should know it. When we accept Jesus Christ as our Savior, the Holy Spirit enters our body. He then simultaneously enlists us into His body, that is, the body of Christ. We must understand that the Holy Spirit also comes to empower us, take control of us, and use us for the glory of Jesus Christ. In this message, Dr. Merritt teaches about the Spirit-filled life. It is the will of God for every Christian to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
"In the Greek language the word 'filled" used here denotes continuous action. In other words, we are to be continuously filled with the Holy Spirit. The baptism of the Holy Spirit lasts a lifetime. The sealing of the Holy Spirit lasts for all eternity. But the filling of the Holy Spirit is to be renewed every day." --Dr. Merritt
