Hloy Spirit Baptism 1

Jesus says in Acts 1:8, "But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem (ie. the city), and in all Judea (ie. the state) and Samaria (ie. the country), and to the end of the earth." To be an effective witness, which is the primary work of the Christian (Mark 16:15), you need the power!

In John 14:12 Jesus says, "Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father". Jesus did NO works until He was baptized in the Holy Spirit! If He needed the power of the Holy Spirit, so do we.
