Summary:
The promise of the Holy Spirit is that all believers would receive the
indwelling presence and resurrection power of the glorified Christ
within us forever!

We don’t necessarily need more of The Holy Spirit.

When we open the door He comes in fully.

However, He needs more of us, our will & adoration surrendered fully unto Him – moment by moment each & every day we encounter.
