36 “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” 37 Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?” 38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”
If we see in the life of Peter after the day of his baptism of the Holy Spirit, he boldly spoke about Christ, convicted many souls, and guided them in to the path of salvation. God the Holy Spirit, not only convict and guide us in our personal life, but also He helps us to convict and guide others through the manifestation of His gifts.
When we have to convict or guide someone else, we need more boldness and clarity within ourselves. This is what the Spirit of God gives us when He flows in us. The more He flow in us, the more His manifestation will be through us. What does it have to do about knowing Christ?
The revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ has to be granted by the Father (Rev 1:1). If it is not granted, then no one can know about His Son. Likewise, the guidance and the counsel are also from the presence of God. Granted by the Father, the Spirit of God will act in our life from the beginning of our spiritual birth and then continuing in our everyday life. In this process of sanctification and counseling, He teaches us more about Christ and His ways and what He likes and what He dislikes. This is how we gain knowledge at a quick pace about Christ to its fullness. If you are not baptized in the Holy Spirit, ask for it. Ask and you shall receive it, and then see for yourself what it is all about the quickening process to gain knowledge of Christ.
