That’s Not the Question

When you become a Christian you receive from God the gift of the Holy Spirit.  That’s his promise to all who put their faith in him.  So it’s not a question of whether or not you have access to this power of the Holy Spirit; the question is, have you accessed it?  Fans may have received the gift of the Holy Spirit but they aren’t being filled with the Holy Spirit.
