The apostles prayed earnestly for a fitness to speak words that would lead sinners to Christ. They put away the differences and desires for supremacy that had stood between them. Confession of sin and repentance brought them into close fellowship with Christ. Those who accept Christ today need a similar experience in preparation for the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
The baptism of the Spirit is not a one-time event; we can experience it daily. We need to plead with the Lord for that baptism, because it gives the church power to witness and to proclaim the gospel. To do this, we must continually surrender our lives to God, abide fully in Christ, and ask Him for wisdom to discover our gifts.
