Ephesians 5:18; "do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit".
Question: "WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BEING FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND BEING INDWELT BY THE HOLY SPIRIT(RECEIVING THE HOLY SPIRIT)?"
Study References: John 20:22, Acts 2:4
Those who are in Christ are not only indwelt but infilled with the Holy Spirit. When Jesus said to his disciples, “I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever” (John 14:16), he was not suggesting that the Holy Spirit was not already working redemptively within his followers but that the Spirit would manifest in the special empowerment of each believer to proclaim the gospel (Acts 1:8; 13:52).
Finally, while the indwelling of the Spirit happens at conversion, the infilling of the Spirit happens continually (Ephesians 5:18). As such, we daily seek the Holy Spirit to empower us whether in our prayers to God or in our proclamations of the gospel. Indeed, whenever the gospel penetrates the human heart it is “‘not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,’ says the Lord
Almighty” (Zechariah 4:6).
"And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance."In these verses the Holy Spirit (strategically) empowered each of his apostles to speak in other tongues. Acts 2:2-4 (ESV)
From this static experience, we can see 'filling' as a potentially recurring event in a believer's life. Praying for God to 'fill us with Your Holy Spirit,' can be an everyday prayer.
