Ephesians 4:5 (NKJV) One Lord, one faith, one baptism
I have heard some people say that all Roman Catholics will not go to heaven. I want to advise Christians reading this devotional to desist from such nonsense and divisive talk.
There are over one thousand Christian denominations in the world, and there is nothing wrong with denominations, as long as they don’t divide us but help make us individually stronger. People have different temperaments and appeals, and that’s why we don’t all fit into one single denomination.
What makes a person a Christian is his faith in Christ Jesus. Does he believe that Jesus is Lord? Has he accepted Christ as his savior and Lord? Is his faith for salvation in Jesus alone?
The next very important thing to consider is his baptism. Every Christian should receive the water baptism of repentance, and the Holy Ghost baptism of power (see Luke 3:16). Water baptism is the [spiritual] public announcement of your new status as a disciple of Christ. Baptism in the Holy Ghost is your initiation into the power of God. The Holy Spirit is the one who administers the grace of God to your spirit.
When I see Christians who are still struggling with their old lifestyle of sin, one of the first questions I ask is ‘has he been baptized in the Holy Spirit?’ because I know that without the power of the Holy Ghost, no one can conquer the power of the flesh (Romans 8:13).
Go into today knowing that your faith in Christ Jesus, and your baptism in His Spirit, makes you a member of His body. Ask the Lord to help you live a life that is filled with His Spirit.
