ENOUGH POWER? 

Do you and I have enough power to live the Christian life? Consider this: we have the power of the Holy Spirit within us…the third person of the Trinity who raised Jesus from the dead. Don't you think that's enough power to keep our minds set on the Spirit, and to have life and peace? I think it's more than enough power…if we use it.

An old cartoon dating back to the World War II depicts a soldier with an M-1 rifle aimed at an oncoming enemy tank. The tank is poised to roll right over the comparatively tiny soldier with his rifle. In the next frame there is a picture of a soldier with a rocket launcher. The soldier in the cartoon is now giant-sized, and the tank relatively small. The idea is that a soldier with a rocket launcher is more than adequate to defeat a tank.

That's our situation. We live defeated lives when we say, "Boy, all I've got against Satan and the world is this little old M-1 rifle and my own determination. I've got to really bear down if I'm going to survive." And all the time we possess the resurrected power that brought Christ out of the grave…we have the Holy Spirit inside us, with the power of a rocket launcher! All we need to do is appropriate it.

MEMORY VERSE 

PHILIPPIANS 1:18

For the word of the cross is to those who are perishing foolishness, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
