Have You Received The Gift?


Have You Received The Gift?

And Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” (Acts 2:38, ESV)

There are different ceremonies in the different denominations and/or divisions of churches of how one should be baptized. Some submerge in water like John the Baptist did, others sprinkle water, and still others lay hands, and we will not judge them for their discernment of God’s Word the Holy Bible. Paul says in 1 Corinthians 1:10, “I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment” (ESV).

As Ambassadors and Disciples of Christ Jesus, the most important thing about being baptized is the receiving of The Holy Spirit from Jesus Christ. If you repent from your heart and ask God to forgive you in His sons name, Jesus Christ, and then allow Him to take control of your life and honestly mean what you say, you will receive His gift and be filled with His Holy Spirit. When you were saved, did you truly believe it with the fullness of your heart? If not, then do it again and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit from our Lord Jesus Christ. Be the Ambassador and Disciple of Christ Jesus that He commanded us to be in Matthew 28 and 2 Corinthians 5.
