Did You know? (Sunday, September 27, 2020)

God’s purpose is that all his people shall both receive the new covenant blessings of the forgiveness of sins and the gift of the Spirit, and receive water-baptism as the sign and seal of these blessings. They are then to continue to be filled with the Spirit and manifest this fullness in holiness of life and boldness of testimony. All Christians are described in the epistle to the Hebrews as being “partakers of the Holy Spirit,” who have “tasted… the powers of the age to come” (6:4,5)
