Understanding your salvation, getting to know your Saviour more intimately and how our lives are empowered with the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is important.
It is important that we not only know the Word but understand what it is teaching us. Without understanding, the seed, that is the Word which is planted in our heart, can be stolen by Satan and you will not have any benefit of the fruit it will bring. The Christian walk is a faith walk and there will be times that we make mistakes and wonder if God can still love us in this mess we made! But the Word tells us that God loves us with the mistakes we make.
Romans 5:8 “But God comments His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Knowing and understanding a scripture like this will ensure that Satan will not steal the seed from you. As we spend time in the Word we will see that forgiveness of sin is only the start of our walk with God. He wants to be our friend and Father, not only does he want fellowship with us but also a relationship.
Our relationship with God is made complete with the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. We read that Jesus told His disciples that He has to go to be with the Father, but He will send someone in His place. He will send a Comforter and a Counsellor; The Holy Spirit. The disciples were fearful and uncertain but on the day they received the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1-4), they began to speak in other tongues and were filled with the miracle power that changed their lives and the lives of those around them. Speaking in tongues is evidence that you have received the Holy Spirit. When we pray in tongues, our mind does not understand but our spirit is praying the perfect prayer (1 Corinthians 14:14).
