The Ministry of the Holy Spirit to Sinners

The Holy Spirit’s ministry concerning the sinner was described by Jesus: Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away; for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart; I will send Him unto you.  (John 16:7 KJV)

And when He is come, He will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
Of sin, because they believe not on me
Of  righteousness because I go to my Father and ye see me no more
Of judgment because the prince of this world is judged
John 16:7-9
John 16:10
John 16:11


There was a man named Nicodemus who was a Pharisee and a Jewish Leader.  One night he went to Jesus and said, “Sir we know that God has sent you to teach us.  You could not work these miracles, unless God were with you.”  Jesus replied, “I tell you for certain that you must be born from above before you can see God’s kingdom!”  Nicodemus asked, “How can a grown man ever be born a second time?”   Jesus answered:  I tell you for certain that before you can get into God’s kingdom, you must be born not only by water, but by the Spirit.  Humans give life to their children.  Yet only God’s Spirit can change you into a child of God.  Don’t be surprised when I say that you must be born from above.  Only God’s Spirit gives new life.  (John 3:1-8; John 1:12; Romans 10:9, 10, 13, 17).


God wants you to experience a wonderful new life filled with hope for now and the future.  Believe and receive God’s love and salvation by faith.  Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life.  John 14:6.

Please Pray this Prayer for Salvation and Baptism in the Holy Spirit

Dear God, 
I come to you with an attitude of gratitude.  Thank you for sending Your Son, Jesus Christ to take away my sin that I might have, a personal relationship with you.

I receive Jesus now as my Savior and Lord, and I turn from my past life to a new life in you through Him.  Fill me with the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4). Holy Spirit, rise up in me as I praise God. I fully expect to speak with other tongues as you give me the ability.

Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for forgiving me of my sins and taking me into your  family.  I am your child now.  You said in your Word that if I confess with my mouth the Lord Jesus Christ and believe in my heart that God raised JESUS from the dead, I would  be saved (Romans 10:9).  I have just made this confession.  I believe the Holy Bible; I believe that I am born again, saved from sin, death, and hell. Thank you for the Gift of Salvation and Eternal Life in Jesus’ name.  AMEN.
