The Holy Spirit of God

I indeed baptized you with water,  but He will baptize you with The Holy Spirit. (Mark 1:8 NKJV)

Do you remember when you were baptized and the emotions you experienced on that special day?  It was certainly a special day.  There was a day that should have been just as special or maybe even with greater joy.  That is the day in which you actually came into the faith of Jesus Christ and accepted Him as Lord and Savior.   For most of us, this happened before baptism. 

Just as the water of baptism symbolizes the death, burial, and the resurrection of the old man, and the outward profession of the union with Christ; so also does the immersion into the Living Water (The Holy Spirit) depicts the union of all whom are of the body of Christ.  When you accept Christ, at that point, you are baptized with the Holy Spirit.  Praise God for His Spirit.  The Holy Spirit will put fire in your bones.
