Answer Question
  1. At first glance, we might think that once we repent and are baptized, we automatically receive the Holy Spirit.

    The Bible does not speak of evidence of the Holy Spirit being in us through physical, outward signs. Instead, it speaks of it in terms of actions of the heart. Jesus Christ stated, “A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit.

    Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them” (Matthew 7:18-20). Christ says it’s by the fruit people bear out in their lives that we could really know people, whether good or bad.

    Again, Jesus tells us directly what He expected of His disciples: “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:34-35). Once again, it is actions of the heart and mind that Christ points to, not things like speaking in tongues or being able to perform a miracle of some sort.

  2. One of our teachers in a Catholic school said that the Holy Spirit would dwell in our hearts if our mind is free from pollution (dirty mind).
