Importance Of Baptism

Stella Ramola
05 Jun
Dear friend, I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Today I welcome you to meditate on Matthew 3:11 which says, “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me will come One more powerful than I, sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.” Yes, today God will baptize you with Holy Spirit and with fire.
 
The above verse was said by John the Baptist about Jesus. In Luke 1:15 & 17, the Bible says this about John the Baptist: “for he will be great in the sight of the Lord. He is never to take wine or other fermented drink, and he will be filled with the Holy Spirit even before he is born. And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the parents to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous—to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
We read a similar thing about Jesus Christ in Luke 3:22, “and the Holy Spirit descended on Him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from Heaven: “You are My Son, whom I love; with You I am well pleased.”” When He was baptized and He came out of the river, the Holy Spirit descended on Him. We read the same in Acts 10:38 that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him. Yes, both of them were called to do the ministry of God Almighty. In the same way, dear child of God, you have to receive the power of God. Luke 11:13 says that If you ask the Holy Spirit to fill you with the power of God, He will surely do it. In our family, brother Dhinakaran read the word of God and asked God to fill him with the power of God by praying earnestly for seven years. Because of this, he was filled by the power of God and now the whole family is filled with the fire of God. Today, if you ask Him, He will fill you too. Then you too will be used mightily for the glory of God.
Prayer:
Loving Father,
 
Thank You for Your promise that You will fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Baptize me with the Holy Spirit today. Lord Jesus, fill me with the power of God so that I would serve You in a glorious way bringing You praise.
 
In Jesus’ precious name, I pray. Amen.
