I would agree that being filled with the Holy Spirit is based on faith, hope and love (as we have said before) and that it results in peace and joy which are the first fruits of our new relationship with God. Of course this is a peace that passes all understanding and a joy that knows no bounds. Neither concept can be defined in worldly terms but only in extraordinary terms to describe the life in the Spirit. There is definitely an “emotional” or subjective aspect to life in the Spirit. But there is something more to it than that.
