HOW TO RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT

Repentance and faith there must be, but that which brings the Holy Ghost into the heart is an exercise of faith in the Sacrifice of the Redeemer.  The blood was shed to purchase that gift; and the faith that exalts and honours, trusts in and pleads that priceless thing, is alone acceptable unto God.  To that alone will He respond, and bestow His mighty gifts.  – PAGET WILKES

Those who are born again have the Spirit, those who are baptized with the Holy Spirit not only have the Holy Spirit, but the Holy Spirit has them.  In the one case, you have the Spirit, in the other case, the Spirit has you.  – READER HARRIS

The command, “Be ye holy,” is as imperative as “Thou shalt not steal,” and as unalterable as the nature of God.

Man cannot make anything as white as snow, but there is something whiter, and that is the heart that Jesus cleanses.

“I will put My laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts” (Heb. 8:10).  Christ’s glorious business is to break the stony heart and write upon it His laws.  What are His laws?  Love.  Has Christ writer that law on your minds?  I love that word “minds.”  People sin so much in their minds; they have critical thoughts of others, they cannot think lovingly except of people they like.  Oh, the luxury, the liberty, of thinking lovingly!  – A.P.W.
