For God loved the world so much that he gave his only son to die for the world; to free man from the bondage of sin and death, and to present man with the gift of eternal life. We were all born in sin, thereby bound under the law of sin and death. Christ came to redeem us from the law of sin and death, and bring us into his kingdom of life and peace.
Have you received Christ into your life?
- Every person must be born again to know God and have everlasting life. John 3:3 & John 3:16
- The reason we must be born again is found in Romans 3:23.
- “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
- You cannot earn salvation. You cannot do it on your own.
- It is God’s gift to you. Ephesians 2:8-9
- Being saved or born again is receiving Jesus as your Lord (Master), committing yourself to follow His Word (the Bible), and believing that God raised Jesus from the dead. Romans 10:9-10
Are you ready to make this life changing commitment?
Are you filled with the Holy Spirit?
Let’s look at Who the Holy Spirit is:
- He is your Comforter and Teacher. He wants to help you. John 14:26
- He gives you power to be a strong witness for Jesus. Acts 1:8
What happens when you are filled with the Holy Spirit?
- You can speak in other tongues. Acts 2:4
- The Holy Spirit is already here for every born again person. Acts 2: 38-39. You don’t need to wait or work to receive Him.
- Your mind will not understand or gain anything from tongues. It will sound useless and foolish to the natural mind.
- You are speaking mysteries to God, not to yourself or other people. I Corinthians 14:2
- Praying in tongues regularly will build or charge up your spirit man. Jude 1:20
Speaking in tongues is an act of your will.
- God gives you the ability to do it but will not force you or do it for you.
- If you ask for the Holy Spirit in faith, the Father will give Him to you. Luke 11:13
Would you like to receive the Holy Spirit today?
Pray according to Luke 11:13. Ask God to fill you with the Holy Spirit.
“Father, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I ask You to fill me with Your Holy Spirit.
I receive Him from You and according to the Bible I can now pray in other tongues.”
You now need to renew your mind according to the Bible in order to live a powerful life as a believer. Romans 12:1-2
You also need to be baptized in water if you have not been. Acts 10:47-48
