but you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.
After Jesus rose from His grave, He met with His disciples. He told them to wait in the city until they were baptized with the Holy Spirit.
He told them at that time they would receive power. They were to open themselves to the third person of the trinity—this promise of the Father (Luke 24:49).
This Spirit was to be their companion because Jesus was going to leave earth. They were to use this power to perform miracles like Jesus did and even greater ones because Jesus was going to the Father (John 14:12). This Spirit would help them walk a moral path and successfully resist the devil.
The promised Holy Spirit arrived and entered the disciples and about 3,000 others on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:41).
This was a gift all believers. It is for us today. Repent of your sin, and ask God to baptize you in His Holy Spirit that you might be a powerful force for His kingdom.
Lord Jesus, forgive my sin, enter in
with Your Holy Spirit,
that I may be Your agent here on earth
until You return.
