The Father in Heaven loves to fill His children with His Holy Spirit.
God longs to give each one individually, separately, the power of the Holy Spirit for daily Life.
The command comes to us individually, unitedly.
God wants us as His children to arise and place our sins before Him, and to call upon Him for mercy.
Oh, are ye so foolish?
Having begun in the Spirit, are ye perfecting in the flesh that which was begun in the Spirit?
Let us bow in shame, and confess before God how our fleshly religion, our self-effort, and self-confidence, have been the cause of every failure.
