1 Corinthians 6:17 But he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with him.

As we join ourselves to Jesus, we become one spirit with Him. This experience of being joined to Jesus is closely connected to the baptism of the Spirit. The word baptism is a Greek word meaning to immerse, submerge or overwhelm. An ancient Greek recipe for making pickles uses the word as it describes how a vegetable is first dipped in boiling water and then baptized in vinegar. As the vegetable soaks in the vinegar, it is permanently changed. Its taste and texture are so radically transformed that it becomes known by a new name: a pickle. In the same way, our baptism in the Holy Spirit so saturates us with the life of Christ that we become something radically different and entirely new. Through baptism, the love of God overwhelms our heart and we become a new creation with a new identity in Christ. It is important to understand that God alone is God and the unity that we have with the Spirit does not turn us into God. Even though a vegetable may be preserved in vinegar, it does not become vinegar, and so even though we are immersed in the Spirit, we cannot claim to be Jesus or the Holy Spirit or God. God alone is God. But neither can we think of ourselves in the old way. Because of our immersion in the Spirit, we need to accept the reality that we are an entirely new creation, a people who are becoming more and more one with Christ. A quick dip in vinegar is not enough to turn a vegetable into a pickle, and it is the same for the baptism of the Spirit. A one-off experience of the Holy Spirit or His gifts does not make for an immersion. The baptism of the Spirit is not a spiritual event but an ongoing relationship of love and unity. We can think of it like marriage. A marriage starts with a wedding, but its substance is found in the ongoing life of love. In the same way, our baptism in the Spirit is an immersion into a life of ever-growing unity with Jesus.

Luke 3:16 John answered them all, saying, “I baptize you with water, but he who is mightier than I is coming, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.”

In Scripture, fire is a symbol of God’s love in its awesome refining and consuming power. Here we find

that Jesus came to baptize us with the Holy Spirit and fire. Not only does Jesus want to make us one spirit with Him, He wants to utterly consume our lives with His love. Our part is to surrender to His will and become like living sacrifices, waiting on the altar for God’s fire to fall. And Jesus will be faithful. He will come to immerse us in His Spirit and fire. Then we will know that our God is a consuming fire because He lives and burns within us. Faithful is He who calls us and loves us. If we are willing, He will do it.
