    One thought on “How to Be Filled with the Holy Spirit”

    1. Pretty much the how to be filled with the Spirit is to be completely surrendered; dying to all self-interest, all desire for pleasure and becoming 100% obedient to all Jesus' commands. After this, if one is completely willing to be slave, a puppet that places the stings into God's hands and truly desires to Spirit, all one needs to do is merely ask God to be filled. Of course you need to understand correct doctrine of how the Spirit is a person and a member of the Godhead and be full of faith. B [...]

    2. About the Book:The only way to live with true spiritual power"Are you sure you want to be possessed by a spirit other than your own? Even though that spirit be the pure Spirit of God? Even though He be the very gentle essence of the gentle Jesus? Even though He be wisdom personified, wisdom Himself? Even though He be as loving as the heart of God?" —A. W. TozerIn a little book that's hard to swallow, A. W. Tozer teaches plainly who the Spirit is, why we should desire Him, but why few of us do. [...]

    3. Tozer says that in order to receive the Holy Spirit, four things must happen.1) We present our body to Him (Romans 12:1-2).2) Then, we ask the Father for the Holy Spirit (Luke 11:9-11).3) Third, we obey and do what we are asked to do, which is to live in accordance with the scriptures (Acts 5:32).4) Last, we have faith - faith that He possesses our bodies, minds, and lives (Galatians 3:2).Then, Tozer gives us wonderful advice for how to cultivate the Holy Spirit:1) We must be engrossed with Jesu [...]

    4. This book is short in length, but its brevity belies its importance. Tozer starts with a simple explanation of who the Holy Spirit is, but the opus maximus of the book is the chapter in which his questions reveal why so few are are seeking to be filled. He asks, “Are you sure you want to be possessed by a spirit other than your own?" He points out that the Holy Spirit gives no quarter in our hearts for self-righteousness, self-serving or self pity. In short we can't be filled with the Holy Spi [...]

    5. Again, Mr. Tozer is becoming one of my favorite authors! As I mentioned before, I feel like the Holy Spirit gets neglected from most people because the focus is mostly on God the Father & God the Son. So, I'm actively searching for all the info I can absorb on the Holy Spirit. This book (How to be Filled with the Holy Spirit) shed so much light on Him! It's one of the books that you just know it'll be on your bookshelf for the rest of your life. Tozer gives insights that I know I would not h [...]

    6. Simply ProfoundAmazingly simple yet profoundly deep and meaningful. This book really makes you think and reflect on what it means to have the Spirit of God love within you. Tower provides a no-nonsense straight forward message. I highly recommend this for both the new believer and seasoned Pastor alike.

    7. Read this before any other study to understand the Holy Spirit.I have read a number of books on the Holy Spirit. Aside from the Bible, this book, though a short, quick read, is the one that has helped me understand who The Spirit is and how to be filled. Simply written. Simple language. Yet very enlightening. Thank you A.W. Tozer.

    8. A little dry and awkwardly read considering it was originally written as a set of sermons I suppose that’s why it translates this way in audio book. Anytime I have read or listened to anything by A.W. Tower I am challenged and want to take notes/highlight a ton so I can come back to key phrases. This was no different. I’d listen to it again despite the peculiarities.

    9. Tozer has a way of cutting right to the truth of matters, and he doesn't pull any punches. In this book, he gives you the no-nonsense approach to being filled with the Holy Spirit. Prepare your heart for reading this book, as Tozer tells you precisely what needs to change in your thinking and way of life before even considering being filled with the Holy Spirit.

    10. Easy reader concerning some of the practicality associated with the gif of the Holy Spirit. I might have liked to read more about the supernatural gift aspect but this might have been best for the audience of those who understand it well.

    11. A must readThis book is amazing! Tozer is able to say things in such a concise yet profound manner and even more amazing is how applicable this book is even though it was written decades ago. A must read for ever Christian.

    12. You can't go wrong with A.W. Tozer. This is a short but sweet volume that explains the Holy Spirit in ways that only Tozer can. Here he goes through many aspects of the Spirit and what it means and doesn't mean. As usual this volume is chalk full of one line wonders in typical Tozer style.

    13. Embrace the Holy Spirit and live.We focus to our detriment that which is material and now. The bulk of life is spiritual and miraculous and supernatural. Be fed by the Holy Bible and instructed by the Holy Spirit and follow the example of Jesus.

    14. The Holy SpiritI’ve only recently discovered Tozer and find Him inspiring. I grew up with little true appreciation for the Holy Spirit. My lack of it had something to do with it. I love the insight about something that deserves so much more time.

    15. A short, but powerful readIm a very immature christian, having been lazy in pursuing anything more than a surface relationship with Christ for 40+ years. Lately, that has changed and this book (a few transcribed sermons) has provided even more encouragement.
