Receiving The Holy Spirit

Q. I have a Holy Spirit Question. I ‘m newly saved, and have fallen in love with the Word Of God. Can a saved person today know if they have received the gift of the Holy Spirit?


A. Ephesians 1:13-14 says, “And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession–to the praise of his glory.”

The Holy Spirit was sealed within you the moment you first believed. As part of this process He has selected at least one Spiritual gift for you to help you make your unique contribution to the Body of Christ. These gifts are listed in 1 Cor. 12:1-11 but I would encourage you to read all of chapters 12-14 for Paul’s entire teaching on the subject.

You should also spend some time studying Romans 12:1-8. It will help you prepare yourself. Then ask God to reveal the gift He’s given you.
