6 whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior,
“Whom” refers to the Holy Spirit (v. 5). Paul referred to each person of the trinity in this passage.
He poured out on us abundantly [richly]
God not only gave us the Holy Spirit, but He poured Him on the church abundantly on the day of Pentecost (Ac 2:17, 33). He was generous with the Holy Spirit. This pouring out occurs with the salvation of each individual (1 Co 12:13).
through Jesus Christ our Savior,
Jesus was the means of giving us the Holy Spirit.
Each Christian receives the Holy Spirit permanently at the point of salvation.
When a person becomes a Christian, he receives the indwelling Holy Spirit at the point of salvation (1 Co 12:13). God put into us all that we need for Christian living by giving us the indwelling Holy Spirit. We now need to claim by faith God’s provisions for Christian living. The Holy Spirit enables the believer to live out the Christian life.
1 Co 12: 13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free—and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.
The indwelling Holy Spirit is not an emotion or ecstatic experience. This prerogative in God’s eyes is not progressive, for it is perfect at the point of salvation. It does not relate to human good or merit. Positional truth is eternal in nature; we have it forever once we receive it. The only way we know this to be true is from the Word of God. Positional truth can never be reversed, for it is eternally permanent.
Ga 3: 26For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
