Why do we forget the Holy Spirit?

There’s a scene in Acts 19 where Paul visits the church in Ephesus. They’re Christians. They love Jesus. They’re fine people. But, something is missing. So, Paul asks them “Have you received the Holy Spirit?” They responded, “No, we did not even know that there was a Holy Spirit.”

Sound familiar?
