The Holy Spirit sets us apart

There are a lot of people moving around confessing their Christianity but to most, it’s outside and transformation has not reached their heart. Pray that you receive the Holy Spirit because that will make you a true Christian. The Samaritans accepted God’s message, they were baptized but something was still missing. Acts 8:16-17 The Holy Spirit had not yet come upon any of them, for they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Then Peter and John laid their hands upon these believers, and they received the Holy Spirit.
There must be something about their character that made Paul wonder if they receive the Holy Spirit. You cannot receive the Holy Spirit and reman the same. Acts 19:2 “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” he asked them. “No,” they replied, “we haven’t even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.”
