Study the lives of those we call saints, those who have attained unusual spiritual power, and you will find their secret right at this point: they sinned, but they never surrendered to sin. They never accepted failure as final. They never ceased to look forward with confidence. They kept saying, “I can in Him.” And to the utmost their power was added to His power.
Charles L. Allen
“And as I began to speak, the Holy Spirit fell upon them, as upon us at the beginning. Then I remembered the word of the Lord, how He said, ‘John indeed baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit.'”
The New King James Version
