Whatever our experience with the Holy Spirit has been up until today, let us all reach for something greater and something deeper than what we have ever had before. If we have been filled, then let us be filled to overflowing. If we have a partial experience, let us reach in for the fullness of the Spirit. Let us believe that the Spirit can descend upon us and remain as He did with Yeshua. All that we have springs out of the infilling of the fullness of the Spirit in our lives. This was the thing that really exploded the church into existence, and it is by the Holy Spirit that we learn to mature and come into sonship.
