Three evidences you’ve received the Spirit:

You trust Him. You desire Him (Abba!). And, the fruit of the Spirit is growing in you.

Faith is living trust in the object of our faith. Legalism is living to prove/earn acceptance from others by what we do; and it’s extremely human to fall into thinking God plays by those rules….even though He doesn’t.
