LESSON 7

 

 

 We learned from the previous lesson that it is very necessary to have the Holy Spirit dwelling within us to maintain our Christian experience. We often refer to this as sanctification, the infilling of the Holy Spirit or the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Since it is so important, we want to use this lesson to teach what a person must do to have this indwelling of the Holy Spirit in their life. The bible makes it very clear so no one should have any difficulty in understanding the Scriptures.

 

1. Be sure that you are saved, born again, for this experience is only for those who have experienced the new birth.

 

Acts 11:15 and 17. And as I began to speak, the _________________ fell on them, as on us at the beginning. (17) Forasmuch then as God gave them the __________________ as He did unto us, who ________________________________________: what was I, that I could withstand God?

2. Be sure you are walking in all the light that you have.

 

1 John 1:6. If we say that we have _______________ with Him, and walk in ______________, we __________, and do _________ the __________________.

 

3. Ask, pray for the Holy Spirit to come into your life.

 

Luke 11:13. If ye then, being evil, know how to give ___________________ unto you your ________________: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the __________________ to them that _________ Him?

 

4. Make a consecration of your entire being unto God.

 

Romans 12:1. I beseech you therefore, __________________, by the mercies of God, that ye _______________ your ________________ a ___________________________, ___________, acceptable ___________________ which is your __________________________________.

 

5. Believe that God does it for you. These are the words of Jesus:

 

Matthew 21:22. And _____________________, whatsoever ye shall ___________________, ______________________________, ye ______________________________________.
