1 Corinthians 12:13 says, “For by one SPIRIT (the Holy Spirit) are WE all baptised into ONE BODY (the church)…”
This described what happens to us when we become children of God. Through a miracle the Holy Spirit we are baptised and grafted or united with the true Christians into the body of Christ. This is a miracle of conversion or of being born again.
This of course is to be distinguished from the baptism in the Holy Spirit spoken of in Luke 3:16, where we read
“John answered saying…I indeed baptise you in water; but One mightier than I cometh… He (Jesus) shall baptise YOU (the Christians) in the Holy Spirit…”
Note the difference!
|WHO ARE BAPTISED?||BY WHOM?||INTOWHAT?|
|1 Cor 12:13||the unconverted||the Spirit||the body of Christ|
|Luke 3:16||the Christians||Jesus||the Holy Spirit|
