Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”
-Jesus Christ brought us the New covenant by writing the laws in our hearts that everyone would know Him. During His baptism, the Holy Spirit in form of a dove came upon Jesus & God the Father acknowledged Him as His Son (Mat 3:16-17). In the same breadth, Jesus baptises us by the impartation of the Holy Spirit that we may benefit from His gifts & fruit to be witnesses of His good works here on earth. During this time; we are made new creatures by remission of sins & renewal of our minds so that we may turn from evil & view things differently in line with the Word of God. Through the blood of Jesus which was shed on the cross for the remission of our sins, we are validated as sons of God & made worthy of an inheritance. That is; the purchased possession of eternity with our generations for the glory of His name (Eph 1:13-14).
Holy Spirit our Helper, we humbly beseech You to fill us with Your gifts & fruit that we may be witnesses of Christ here on earth. Guide us in Your wisdom that we may also increase in knowledge & understanding of Your word. Forgive us our sins, sins of our families & leaders; & renew our minds that we may always be inclined to You for all things & live according to Your will. We pray this believing & trusting in Jesus name. Amen
