Dr Lloyd-Jones on the Concious Experience of the Baptism of the Spirit

"Not concious! The Apostles were as men who appeared to be filled with new wine; they were in a state of ecstasy. They were rejoicing, they were praising God; they were moved, their hearts were ravished; they experienced things which they had never felt or known before. They were transformed and were so different that you can scarcely recognise them as the same Peter and James and John and the rest as they once were. Not experimental! Nothing can be more experimental; it is the height of Christian experience!".

Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones - "Ephesians: God's Ultimate Purpose (Ephesians 1)" - Banner of Truth Trust, Edinburgh (1978).
