Becoming A Witness-Part 1

Let me share with you over the next several days a great article by Dr. Wade E. Taylor:

BECOMING A WITNESS

“For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.” I Corinthians 12:13

The “Baptism of the Holy Spirit” is received at the time of salvation, in which we are “immersed,” or “set” into the Body of Christ, by the Holy Spirit.

“Now you are the body of Christ, and members in particular.” I Corinthians 12:27

“We are all baptized into one body.” Through “regeneration,” we are made a specific member of His body (a member in particular). As we grow spiritually, we will discover our place within the Body of Christ (placement). It is important that we both know and function in this specific calling and ministry.

“One Lord, one faith, one baptism.” Ephesians 4:5

We are saved only once, therefore, there is “one baptism” with many immersions (infillings).

“I indeed baptize you with water to 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 Spirit and with fire.” Matthew 3:11
