HOW IT ALL BEGAN

Acts 2:38
Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.

THE THREE STEPS

REPENT
Those who say repentance is no longer necessary have forgotten the basics of the gospel.
Repentance is being sorry for your failure and sin – and acknowledging your need of forgiveness and cleansing.
GOD’S PART – is to demonstrate His love toward us in showing mercy.
OUR PART – is to come to Him in humility and surrender, and call upon the name of the Lord.

REMISSION
The remission of your sins is the act of God applying the blood of His Son Jesus upon our lives.
GOD’S PART – is to remit our debt and declare us forgiven and made righteous in Christ.
OUR PART – is the outward demonstration of the inner work of God, as a testimony to all.

RECEIVE
Receiving the Holy Spirit and being baptised in God’s fulness and power – is the evidence of a person hungry for God – and wholly committed to His purposes.
GOD’S PART – was completed by releasing the Holy Spirit to come to earth to indwell every believer.
OUR PART – is to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit and to then partner with Him in completing the work that Jesus began on earth.

HIS KINGDOM COME
HIS WILL BE DONE
