When you receive Jesus Christ as Lord of your life, spiritual death is taken from
you and you become a new creature in Christ. And without the Holy Spirit, your new
birth wouldn’t be possible. But even after you become a new creation, God’s desire
and plan is that you receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit.
