106. What does the Holy Spirit desire?

The Holy Spirit not only desires to influence us nor only to be with us as a guest, but also to live in us, to fill us and to rule over us.

  • You know Him (the Spirit of truth), for He dwells with you and will be in you. (John 14:17)
  • If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him. (John 14:23)
  • Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? (1 Corinthians 3:16)
  • Be filled with the Spirit! (Ephesians 5:18)

If the Holy Spirit lives in us, then Christ lives in us:

  • Christ in you, the hope of glory. (Colossians 1:27)
