Matthew 3:11 “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.

            As John the Baptist intoned these words I’m sure many in the crowd who came did not understand. As a child growing up in a country Methodist church I cannot recall ever hearing about the “infilling of the Holy Spirit” although it has been a hallmark of true Methodism from the very beginning. The fire of the Holy Spirit (see John Wesley biography- “I felt my heart strangely warmed.”) is a very real thing and transforms utterly. It is a tragedy I think that so many people have tried down through the years to demonstrate and show the supposed affect of a spiritual conversion but have failed to yield to the cleansing, restoring power of that self-same spirit. This has led many to point out the hypocrisy underlying many so-called manifestations of “power”.

            The Holy Spirit will readily come in His “fullness” (Ephesians 1:23, 3:19, 4:13) when we hunger for His righteousness more than we hunger for life itself. This is the crisis experience of “entire” sanctification. Not so much “perfection” as our modern syntax has so limited our conceptions, but as whole and complete as it is possible with our limited comprehension of the future and our response to it.
