5 Keys To Being Filled With The Holy Spirit

Written by Harold Herring. Posted in RichThoughts

The Bible says those who hunger and thirst after righteousness will be filled. (Matthew 5:6).  If you are hungry for the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues, here is how to receive this free gift.

1.         Accept Christ.  Accepting Christ is accepting what you cannot do for yourself by accepting what He did for you at Calvary.  That is where He bore the effects of your sins.  It is a process of letting go.  Accepting Christ is admitting you don’t have what it takes to handle everything in life on your own.  It’s admitting you don’t know it all.  It’s releasing a hold on this temporal life to gain everlasting life.
