RE Verse reading–Acts 1:1-8 (day one) “John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now” The Holy Spirit’s role is part of our gospel. Redeemed by Christ’s death on the cross, are now saved by His resurrected life (Romans 5:10) Jesus promised the disciples that they would be baptized with the Holy Spirit (probably a one time event completed at Pentecost) and that the Spirit would continually fill, guide, and empower them. Today begins a new series of studies for us at FBC. Over the next 13 weeks, we will be challenged to look at the promises of God’s word and then compare them to our own lives. Read with hope! Christ promises a new place to live (in Him). He also promises new purity. (The Holy Spirit will wash our souls just as water washes our skin) He also promises new power for service. May it be so for every believing heart!
