Marlene's Ministry Corner - Is there real evidence about the Spirit?

Marlene's Ministry Corner

Is there true evidence that an individual truly has the holy spirit?

Listen to what it says in the chapter of St. Luke:

And Jesus read from the scroll of the prophet Isaiah:

        'The spirit of the Lord is on me,
         because he has anointed me
         to preach the good news to the poor.
  He has sent me to proclaim freedom
             for the prisoners
     and recovery of sight for the blind,
  to release the oppressed,
      to proclaim the year of the Lord's
_________St. Luke 4: 18 - 19

Paul the apostle stated this about the Spirit in the 5th chapter of Galatians:

_____Galatian 5: 16 - 18
             So I say, live by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the sinful nature.
         For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is
      contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do
      what you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law.

_____Galatian 5: 22 - 26
      But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,    faithfulness, gentleness and  self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to
Christ Jesus crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us
keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited , provoking and envying each other.

Giving all praise, honor and glory to Christ Jesus!
