All ages may receive the Spirit
What an incredible evidence of the sovereignty of God - to put His Spirit upon whomever He chooses!
• Age was not a factor
• Purity of walk was not a factor (something may be said for Zechariah and Elizabeth's righteousness...)
• Praying the right prayer to receive the Spirit was not a factor
• Water baptism was not a requirement
Let's not take a once-off occurrence and make a rule from it. There is a time for everything, as God has determined. We must live righteously, pray for the Spirit to come upon us, but always leaving space for the sovereign Hand of God to override these structured times and practices.
