The New You & The Holy Spirit
If you’ve received Jesus as your Savior, one-third of your salvation is complete. It’s a done deal. Your spirit is sealed (Eph. 1:13) and perfected forever (Heb. 10:14). That is the new you on the inside. But there is more to being a Christian than just the forgiveness of your sins and having a ticket to heaven. If you’re going to experience life the way God intended, you need the baptism of the Holy Spirit. I know some people take issue with that.
“You’re saying I don’t have the Holy Spirit even though I’ve been born again?”
No, that’s not what I’m saying.
“Well, then, if I got the Holy Ghost when I was saved, that’s all the Holy Ghost I need!”
Well, no, that’s only partially true. Yes, you did receive the Holy Spirit when you were saved, but there’s another, separate experience for after you’re born again. This is where you need to let the Bible get in the way of what you believe. Religion has taught that the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit all passed away with the apostles. That isn’t true. Speaking of the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the Apostle Peter said,
For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
That includes you and me.
You know, Scripture talks about how believers will receive power after the Holy Ghost has come upon them (Acts 1:8). I know many Christians who are saved but powerless, and it’s this separate experience of the Holy Spirit that makes all the difference. Before I had the baptism of the Holy Spirit, I was charging hell with a water pistol. After I received the Holy Spirit, boy, it was like having a fire hose!…
The benefits of your salvation have been bought and paid for! But in order to access them, you will need help. That is exactly why God gave you the Holy Spirit. Jesus said, “It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. . . . When He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth” (John 16:7 and 13, New King James Version).
What did Jesus mean? Let Andrew show you in his teaching The New You & The Holy Spirit! You’ll not only gain a deeper understanding of what took place inside you when you were born again, but you will also be introduced to the Holy Spirit and all the benefits that come from Him! This foundational series will surely bring new growth to the seeds of truth that have already been planted in your heart and mind.
