Anyone who reads the Book of Acts can quickly see that our third essential principle was central to the birth and growth of the Early Church.
Roland Allen writes: “The Spirit of Christ is a Spirit who longs for, and strives after, the salvation of the souls of men, and that the Spirit might dwell in them. That Spirit converts the natural instinct into a longing for the conversion of others which is indeed divine in its source and character.”

There are seven places in Acts that state that the church and believers were filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4; 4:8, 31; 9:17; 13:9, 52). They knew that NOTHING can be accomplished for the glory of God without the Spirit. Our spiritual growth, maturity, fellowship, preaching, teaching, missions, ministry – literally everything, depends on our lives being filled and empowered with the Holy Spirit. Why then is He ignored in all these areas of life and Christian work?
Let us REPENT and RETURN TO THE BIBLICAL PLACE THAT BELONGS TO THE HOLY SPIRIT!
