“If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?”
King James Version (KJV)

Even though you are saved once, you can drift back into sin so deep without repentance you are lost again.

CCorrect once you are born again it cannot be undone it is spiritual, that doesn't mean that when your born again you immediately do Gods word that requires study working it changing your thinking.

You can lose your salvation if you turn and reject the truth and follow after Balaam. Read (2 Pet 2:15-22) For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than , after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. Remember the devil walks around like a roaring lion try to devour whom he can. Trying to take the righteous off the path and he sometimes does succeed. That's why it is important to grow daily in the knowledge of Jesus Christ so that we are able to withstand the wiles of the devil. Let yesterday's victory be a foundation of faith to stand on so that we can build on it today and become stronger for tomorrow we will be tested once more.

Hi David. A picture of salvation is like when you was a little walking across the street with you parents, you're in the middle and both parents have you by the hand, "they're holding your hands you're not holding theirs" . Jesus says in John ch 10; I give them eternal life and THEY SHALL NEVER PERISH, no man can pluck them out of my hand, my father which gave them me is greater than all and no man can pluck them out of my Father's hand. salvation is a gift for those who believe, but if you try to add to it you are attempting to hold their hand and you will always question your grip.

"And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day."John6:39
Are you trusting him to have saved you, or do you have to earn it, and if it is earned, that's not grace.
DAVID STEWART's comment on 2021-01-14 08:58:25:
once justfied in christ is it possible to lose your salvation and grace or are you permanently

The best evidence of the Holy Spirit in a person is that Jesus Christ is glorified:
(John 16:13-15) - Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
(1 Corinthians 12:3) - Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
The same chapter 12 in 1 Corinthians lists certain gifts of the Spirit and explains their true purpose; to build up the Church. Tongues was but one of the sign gifts. Paul teaches its proper place in 1 Corinthians chapter 14.
Ephesians chapter 5 exhorts us to walk worthy and be filled with the Spirit.
The fruit of the Spirit is evidence of our walking in the Spirit:
(Galatians 5:22-23) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
Peggy Smith's comment on 2020-09-20 06:45:01:
Is speaking in tongues the evidence a person has been filled with the Holy Spirit or are we filled after we repent and are baptized...by faith in Christ(apart from speaking in tongues?)
Hubert's comment on 2015-07-06 22:36:30:
The gift of the Holy Spirit, is the gift of eternal life. John 7 38-39 Rivers of living water. Spake he of the Holy Ghost. John 4 7-14 The gift of God, Living water. Romans 6 23 gift of God. Acts 8 20. The gift of God. All this is talking about the gift of eternal life and the gift of the Holy Ghost, it 's all the same thing.
Nkosinathi Ngulube's comment on 2014-07-07 13:15:56:
Verily l say unto thee, there hath no greater gift that surpasses the gift of the Holy Spirit.
