Tit 3:5 Teaches Christians Receive A Personal Out Pouring Of the Holy Ghost

Titus 3:5-6 reads “Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ …”

NASV – … renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ …

NIV – … renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ …

NKJV – … renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ …

In this verse, the Holy Ghost is what is poured out from God. The Holy Ghost is the element of the pouring, not the one doing the pouring.

Who is promised the Holy Ghost according to Titus 3:6? Those who are:

• saved according to His mercy, v.5

• justified by His grace, v.7

• made heirs … of eternal life, v.7

That gets every disciple, correct?

Conclusion: All Christians receive the Holy Ghost (not just a select few like the miraculous). Context proves it.
