Can you imagine starting new believers off with the Holy Spirit? What if the first thing you
were taught as a newborn Christian was how to connect easily and daily with the Holy Spirit Who was living inside you, anointing you, empowering you and transforming you!
Repent, be baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38). REALLY! Wouldn’t it be better if he had said, “You will have eternal life and go to heaven when you die?” Apparently, Peter believed the preferred focus is on the fact that the Holy Spirit comes to live within us, empower us and anoint us (Gal. 2:25). Do you think it’s time we get back to New Testament Christianity?
