Newborn!: Into Life with Christ

To be born-again, baptized in the Holy Spirit for the first time can be both thrilling and scary. As Jesus once said, "Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the Kingdom of God like a child will not enter it" (Luke 18:17, NAB). As Jesus implies, we are not born-again as an adult but rather as crying babes. We are surrounded by new feelings and experiences. We need to learn how to grow up in the faith, to maintain our relationship with God, and use his gifts wisely.

In this book, I have recorded what I have learned in my process of growing into charismatic maturity in Christ. One of the most important discoveries is that we each receive different gifts, and all who have given their hearts to Christ bear some form of gifts. All we need to do is seek the maturity to discover them.

I hope that this book will inspire you and give you strength in knowing that it is a great gift to be a child of God and begin to be taught by the power of the Holy Spirit. We all need to seek his wisdom and strength in order to serve our God and our King Jesus.
