God the Holy Spirit – 25

The Holy Spirit of God is the blessed Spirit of identity

Matt. 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:

The Lord Jesus Christ baptizes His followers with the Holy Spirit. That baptism makes them part of His body, the Church – His Church. Baptism is identity. Jesus is our identity. We are identified with Him as He baptizes us with His Spirit and we are controlled and led by His faithful Spirit. We lose our own identity and take on His identity and are filled with His Spirit.

Lord Jesus,
Thank you that you love us enough to include us in your Church. Thank you for baptizing us with and in your Holy Spirit. You are willing to be identified with us as we are identified with you. You make us your body and we become your Church as we submit to your identity. We are so blessed.

Amen
