God's Spirit In You

God is in you through the Holy Spirit. You can know for sure when the Holy Spirit is in you. God's Spirit enables your faith in Christ. He gives you hope in Christ for the future. He fills you with the love of Christ. His love works in your heart, that is your mind, will, and emotions.

Faith, hope, and love in Jesus Christ is sure evidence, that God's Spirit is in your life. Abiding faith is your bond with Christ. Hope in Christ is your assurance of eternal life. The love of Christ in you is the greatest evidence of all, because "God is love" (1 John 4:8, 16). 

God's Spirit is in you. You can know now, and you can know for sure. Three simple questions will tell you the truth. First, do you have faith in God through our Lord Jesus Christ? Secondly, do you have the hope of eternal life in Christ? Most importantly, do you know the love of God in your heart, causing you to love the Lord and others?

The abiding gifts of the Holy Spirit are real in the lives of those who have a personal relationship with God in Christ. That's how you know that God's Spirit is in you. "And now abide faith, hope, and love, these three; but the greatest of these is love" (1 Corinthians 13:13).
