When we receive Jesus as our Savior, the Holy Spirit imparts eternal life to us. Our spirit being is recreated, and we become new creatures in Christ (2 Cor. 5:17). After the New Birth, the Holy Spirit works within us to develop character—the fruit of the Spirit. These are examples of the Spirit's work within. But another experience awaits us as believers to bring us into a deeper dimension spiritually. That experience is the baptism in the Holy Spirit, or the Spirit upon. Through that event, the Spirit empowers us for service.
