The Scriptures teach that Christians are to be "filled or controlled" by God, the Holy Spirit. This thesis will define what the Bible teaches regarding how the Holy Spirit comes to dwell within a person, what is involved in continually submitting the heart to the Holy Spirit's filling or control, and what are the behavioral and attitude manifestations in a Christian when controlled by the Holy Spirit. The filling of the Holy Spirit will be discussed in the life of the individual Christian, his family and the local church as seen in Ephesians 5:18- 6:17, Galatians 5:22-23, Romans, I Corinthians and Acts.
