Holy Spirit Filled

"The greatest question that can be asked of the "twice born" ones is, "Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed?" This was the password into the early Church."  --L. B. Cowman, Streams in the Desert

Acts 19:1, 2 tells us:  While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul passed through the interior and came to Ephesus.  There he found some disciples and asked them, "Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you became believers?"  "No," they answered, "we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit."

Lay Your Burden Down

The Lord made it clear to me this morning that even though I say I trust Him, I continue to carry my own burdens.  How do I do this?  I worry and fret, get down in the dumps.....in general, lose my peace.  So He gave me the image of two baskets. . . .
