Being Filled By the Spirit: A Relational, Not Spatial Issue: PART 1
August 21, 2022 Speaker: Eric Douma
In this topical message we begin to examine what it means to be “filled by the Spirit.” We begin by proving that every Christian has the Holy Spirit in order to refute a form of Christian elitism that claims only some Christians have the Spirit. We also explain how being filled by the Holy Spirit is not a spatial issue but a relational issue. We show from the Old Testament that God’s shekinah glory given to Israel did not mean God failed to be omnipresent. In other words, God’s shekinah glory was not a spatial issue, but this glory showed that Israel uniquely had a saving relationship with God. Come and hear for yourself how the giving of the Spirit to believers demonstrates that we uniquely have a saving relationship with God through faith in Christ.
