let's unwrap this gift!

When you purchase a special gift for a child, a friend or someone you love -- and then once you get it all wrapped up and tied with a bow -- aren’t you excited to watch them open it? You want them to enjoy it and be blessed by whatever’s inside that beautifully curated box, right?

When it comes to our spiritual lives, there is a great parallel. Jesus purchased great gifts for us and for a variety of reasons many believers have not yet received, opened or experienced His gifts! Today, let’s dive into -- better yet, let’s receive and unwrap -- one of God’s wonderful gifts. 

The gift I am talking about is the Holy Spirit! Specifically, God has “gifted” us with two experiences we can have with the Holy Spirit.

>>Friends, this is not going to be just “nice to know” information -- seriously, these two experiences are game-changers! Let’s take a look at each of them.

The first gift we can experience -- and absolutely the most important and essential for each of us -- is the gift of being “born of the Spirit.” This is the Holy Spirit coming to live within us. This happens when we get saved, when we ask Jesus to be the Lord of our life. 

We see this mentioned in 1 Corinthians 3:16 (NKJV): “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” We also see it again in John 14:17 (AMP): “The Spirit of Truth, whom the world cannot receive [and take to its heart] because it does not see Him or know Him, but you know Him because He (the Holy Spirit) remains with you continually and will be in you.”

Absolutely, being “born of the Spirit” -- our salvation and eternal destination -- is the best gift and takes center stage. But, the story doesn’t end with us being saved and having the Holy Spirit take up residence in our hearts...there’s more! 

The Bible talks about another gift the Holy Spirit brings to our lives. This gift is known as being baptized with the Spirit...this happens when we receive the Spirit, and He fills us and comes upon us.

In Acts 1:4-5, we encounter Jesus talking to some of the apostles soon after His resurrection. He encourages them with this: “Once when he was eating with them, he commanded them, ‘Do not leave Jerusalem until the Father sends you the gift he promised, as I told you before. John baptized with water, but in just a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit’” (NLT).

Another verse that helps shed light on this gift...this second experience of the Holy Spirit...is seen in Acts 2:4: “And they were filled with the Holy Spirit…” (NKJV). In that verse, “they” referred to a group of believers -- those who were already saved -- who then experienced more of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit came “upon” them...they were “filled” with the Holy Spirit.

Today, I want to encourage each of you, friends, to dig into the Word and find out more about what God has to say about being born of and filled with the Spirit. Both experiences are free gifts we simply unwrap by believing and receiving them. Be hungry and thirsty for all that He has for you, don’t leave a gift unwrapped!

Why am I so passionate about helping you experience these gifts? Here’s why…  When you are born of the Spirit, you become a new person in Christ -- you’re forgiven and made righteous in God's sight and given eternal life! This is huge and life-changing! If you have never received this gift, you can do it today. Just pray the sample prayer below -- today’s YOUR day!

When you are filled with the Spirit, you’ll have a whole new level of power and ability to live out the victorious, world-changing Christian life and a fresh boldness to share the Gospel with others. If you’re tired of living the “roller coaster” Christian life or just feeling like you can never quite live the life you feel called to as a believer...this is the gift you need to open today! 

Being born of and filled with the Holy Spirit are game-changers, and I’m so excited for you to experience these gifts! Here are the two prayers you can pray right now...

Prayer to be born of the Spirit -- salvation: “Father, thank You for sending Jesus to the cross to die for my sins so that I can be reconciled to You! I don’t want to spend a single moment apart from You, in this life on earth and for eternity. Jesus, I invite You into my heart today and ask You to be the Lord of my life! Thank You for Your great love for me and for saving me. Today’s my day -- thank You Holy Spirit for causing me to be born again and from this day forward, I am born of the Spirit and Jesus is my Lord! In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”

Prayer to be filled with the Holy Spirit -- empowerment: “Father, I ask You in Jesus’ Name to fill me with the Holy Spirit so that I may receive the fullness of Your Spirit. Lord, I want to have power to be a witness for You. I want to be able to praise You from my innermost being, and I want to speak Your Word boldly. Jesus, I believe You are the baptizer, so I ask You to baptize me in the Spirit. I believe I receive the Holy Spirit coming upon me now. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
