The Baptism of the Holy Spirit

Believers are One in Christ

As believers, we are "one body: so also is Christ." 60 As members of His body, He has "blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ." 61 It is in Christ "in whom we have redemption" 62 and "in whom also we have obtained an inheritance." 63 And since it is He "in whom [we] also trusted, after that [we] heard the word of truth, the gospel of [our] salvation", it is He "in whom...[we] were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise." 64

In other words, "by one Spirit" 65 we are "baptized into Christ." 66 We are "complete in him" 67 at redemption, so the baptism of the Holy Spirit only contributes to our position as believers. These blessings are all available to the person who will "believe on his name", 68 who has been baptized into Christ, and sealed by the Holy Spirit.
