Dr Lloyd-Jones on 1 Corinthians 12:13

"1 Corinthians 12:13 - This is an action which, again the Holy Spirit alone can work. It is not the baptism with the Spirit but the Spirit baptizing us, whom He has first of all made regenerate into the body of Christ. Unfortunately there is confusion today about that. It is the Lord Jesus Christ who baptizes with the Spirit. But here we are told of an action of the Spirit baptizing us into the body of Christ and making us members of that body".
