In my last post, I said that the Holy Spirit is a person. One question I have received regarding this is what I mean by this statement.
Well, let me clarify. When we say that the Father, Son and Spirit are one God who eternally exists as three persons, we do not mean that God the Father or God the Spirit became human beings as God the Son did. It simply means that each member of the Trinity, which includes the Spirit, thinks, acts, feels, speaks, and relates because they are persons, not impersonal forces. This is why the Spirit is a “he” and not an “it”.
So, as I stated earlier, because the Spirit is a person, you either have him or you do not. You cannot divide him up into parts and only have a piece of him. So whatever, “be filled with the Spirit” means, it does not mean that you need to have more of the actual presence of the Spirit. If you are a believer, you already have all of him all of the time.
