Podcast 154: Be Filled
Jesus received the Spirit at His baptism, which enabled Him to fulfill His ministry. At the end of His earthly mission, He directed His disciples to wait in Jerusalem where they would “receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
Paul conveyed the same thought to the church in Ephesus, “Be filled with the Spirit.” (Ephesians 5:18) These commands are just as fundamental and essential to believers today was they were to Jesus, His disciples, and the early church.
