The Catholic Christian sacrament
of Confirmation originates
with this practice.
Water Baptism is not the only
time or way that the Holy Spirit
comes to live in a person; but
the New Testament indicates
the importance of being baptized
into Christ and thus being
sealed with the Holy Spirit.
Or are you unaware that we who were baptized into
Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?
In him you also, who have heard the word of truth,
the gospel of your salvation, and have believed in him,
were sealed with the
promised holy Spirit
