Join us today as Pastor Greg Pratt teaches us about receiving the promise of the Holy Spirit!
Then, the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.”
Today because of the work of Christ, we have the Holy Spirit living in us.
If we believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins and that God raised Him from the dead, we would be saved. At that very moment the Holy Spirit comes into to our hearts. Christ breathes on us!
And finding some disciples he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” So they said to him, “We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.”
And he said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?” So they said, “Into John’s baptism.” Then Paul said, “John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.”
When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied.
