And being assembled together with them, He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but to wait for the Promise of the Father, “which,” He said, “you have heard from Me; for John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” (Acts 1:4-5 NKJV)


Thought For the Week: For some of us who were baptized as infants, our water baptism pointed the way forward to the Holy Spirit. For others, we chose to be baptized as a profession of having received the Spirit. But for all of us, we embrace water baptism not because the water itself is special, but because it is a powerful symbol of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon us.

Prayer: Lord, as we remember our baptisms, we do so with gratitude for the Holy Spirit that You freely poured out on us. As we baptize others, we ask that You would fill us anew with Your Spirit. Let us not lose sight of where our power comes from, so that we may live by Your power each day, to the glory of Your name. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
