When we have faith in Jesus Christ, repent, and are baptized, we are prepared to receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
In preparation for my lesson tomorrow morning on Act Chapter 2, I was taken by the word RECEIVE in the statement above. Look at all the other key words used prior to the word RECEIVE. We must have faith, repent, and be baptized. Once these steps are complete, then we can RECEIVE the wonderful gift of the Holy Ghost. As we RECEIVE that third member of the Godhead into our lives our hearts will change and we can be truly converted unto Him, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I want the youth to take some time thinking about when their hearts have been changed, when they felt converted, and how they acted once that feeling overwhelmed them. I created this simple little worksheet so they can take some personal time to really ponder and pray about those moments in their lives. I hope that your youth will visit these memories too!
