But and if when ye do well, ye suffer wrong and take it patiently, then is there thanke with God.21 Hereunto verily were ye called, for Christ also suffered for our sakes: leaving us an ensample that ye should follow his steps,22 which did no sin, neither was there guile found in his mouth:23 which when he was reviled, reviled not again: when he suffered, he threatened not: but committed the cause to him that judgeth righteously,24 which his own self bare our sins in his body on the tree, that we should be delivered from sin and should live in righteousness.

Because it is at that time Christ received the power to do the ministry that God had called him to do. For it is after His experience in the Jordan that He went into the wilderness "full of the Holy Spirit," (Luke 4:1) and when He returned to Galilee it was "in the power of the Spirit." (Luke 4:14) This is in keeping with Luke's Spirit baptism language.
I believe that this was a power to be baptism.
