Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 361

  1. You will be baptized with the Holy Spirit” (Acts 1:5).

Here is the promise Jesus has been pointing to for weeks. Some see transition in these words as Jesus is “handing off” the revelation baton to the 3rd of the Trinity’s persons. Of course, we can’t draw such distinct lines as such a moment will also provide the necessary power for completing the mission Jesus, himself, has assigned. Regardless of how we might characterize this promise, it is clearly marked by the command to “wait” until the promise is fulfilled. “You will” is not “You can” as though such a moment would be optional. “Be baptized” is not “get baptized” as though the moment is yours to obtain. Our only role is to demonstrate our desire for such a moment and we do that by waiting with the expectation that His promise will be fulfilled in us, just as it was in a few days for them.
