The Holy Spirit Is Upon Them

He ordered them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.

Acts 10:48

As part of my prison ministry, for a “Holy Hour” each Tuesday, I offer baptism and reaffirmation of baptismal promises for those who feel moved by the Holy Spirit. Recently, two men moved with tears during our “Holy Hour” asked for baptism. Surrounded by eight other men who have professed their love and fidelity to Jesus Christ, we welcomed two more men as Ambassadors for Christ. We felt the presence of the Holy Spirit descend upon them with God’s delight. In Acts chapter 10, Peter is speaking to the Gentiles reminding them that God shows no partiality. Whoever loves and follows him is welcome into the kingdom of God.

“While Peter was still speaking these things, the Holy Spirit fell upon all who were listening to the word. The circumcised believers who had accompanied Peter were astounded that the gift of the Holy Spirit should be poured out on the Gentiles also, for they could hear them speaking in tongues and glorifying God. Then Peter responded, “Can anyone withhold the water for baptizing these people, who have received the Holy Spirit even as we have? He ordered them to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.”

The water of life!
