That same Holy Spirit that came so powerfully on Pentecost, is the same Holy Spirit that still comes to us through Holy Baptism. His Work is ultimately to communicate Jesus to our hearts that our sins might be forgiven and that our hearts might be enlightened to know and believe all the promises of God.
