The Promises of God:
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?
Here we have THE PROMISE of the Father - that the Holy Spirit will be given to all who ASK! Just before this verse Jesus tells a story of a friend who at midnight comes and asks bread from his friend because he has received unexpected company and has nothing to feed them. The friend is not happy about being awakened at such an hour but gets up and grants the request so he can go back to sleep again. The story ends by Jesus commending the friend for his PERSISTENCE - Have you asked for the Holy Spirit and feel you have not received Him in fullness? KEEP asking - persistence is rewarded and the Holy Spirit is PROMISED!
