Understanding the Baptism in the Holy Spirit
On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about. For John baptized with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit…But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” – Acts 1:4-5, 8 NIV
If you are saved, you do not have to seek the Holy Spirit’s indwelling presence because He lives and abides in you. However, the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is a separate experience from salvation that every believe should seek and receive.
