Have you received the Holy Spirit?

DAY 38

HAVE YOU RECEIVED THE HOLY SPIRIT SINCE YOU BELIEVED?

 Now before we get all worked up in an argument about a works gospel, I just want to point out that you have to believe(verb) before you can be saved because your actions are required to complete the work of Grace in your life.

 Acts 19:1-7 (ASV)
And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper country came to Ephesus, and found certain disciples:  and he said unto them, Did ye receive the Holy Spirit when ye believed? And they said unto him, Nay, we did not so much as hear whether the Holy Spirit was given. And he said, Into what then were ye baptized? And they said, Into John’s baptism.
And Paul said, John baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people that they should believe on him that should come after him, that is, on Jesus.  And when they heard this, they were baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus.  And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Spirit came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied. And they were in all about twelve men.
