In regards to the ICSB Application question 1:8: The ability for me to be a witness would require the power of the Holy Spirit, because I was not actually PRESENT at Jesus’ death and resurrection. The Holy Spirit provides me with the Truth and Grace to accept the knowledge of Christ’s death and resurrection. In turn, I can share this message with others.
In regards to the ICSB Application question 1:5, the expression means to me that the Spirit is always with me; it is a part of me. By “taking a bath in the Holy Spirit,” my original sin is gone and I am now “clean” to accept God’s way of life and His love.
