But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you… – Acts 1:8
The greatest experience anyone could ever have is the infilling of the Holy Spirit. Nothing in the world compares to the Holy Spirit taking up His abode in you, making your body His living tabernacle—twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, fifty-two weeks of the year, three hundred and sixty-five days in a year, and three hundred and sixty-six days on leap year!
In John 14:23, Jesus said, “…If a man loves me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” This blessing is for the one who loves the Lord and keeps His Word; Jesus and the Father will set up their headquarters in him! How? It’s by the Holy Spirit. That’s when you experience His glorious manifestations and operations in your life.
Having received the Holy Spirit, you carry the Kingdom in you; when you arrive in a place, the Kingdom of God arrives in you! You’ve become the carrier, as well as a dispenser, of eternal verities. What a life! Prayer, for you, isn’t a religious monologue, but a time of fellowship in the communion of the God-kind. When you pray, even your body responds; currents of divine power surge through your being! Until you received the Holy Spirit, that never happened! O, when the Holy Spirit fills your life!
Recall what happened to the Apostles on the day of Pentecost: the Bible says “…they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting” (Acts 2:1-2). Afterwards, they became Spirit-controlled men and women, preaching the Gospel with power, miracles, signs and wonders.
Honour the Holy Spirit and appreciate His presence and ministry in your life; He’s the One who gives you the power to live for the Master. Your offerings and service to God are not even acceptable to Him except they are presented through the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:16; Hebrews 9:4).

The Holy Spirit lives in me; in Him I live, move and have my being! I’m a God-carrying vessel, filled with the maximum load of God! Therefore, I’m unconquerable and indomitable, because greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. Blessed be God!
