"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth."
Do you know the power of God in your life? Or do you feel like you're missing out on something? Maybe you feel out of touch with God, or that your witness isn't as strong as it could be.
You know, Jesus' disciples felt just this way. On their own, they were not fit for serving the Lord Jesus Christ. They were uneducated and undertrained. But something happened that transformed their lives. As he had promised, Jesus sent them the Holy Spirit… the gift of the Father… his own Spirit in their lives… the baptism of the Spirit.
And what happened next was supernatural. They were filled with fire and the Gospel exploded into the first century. And that fire turned their world upside down!
Do you need this kind of power in your life? Of course, you do! I do, too. And God will give it to you. Ask the Holy Spirit to take control of your life and yield to him at every turn. The Scripture says he must increase and we must decrease. This is the Spirit-filled life!
Allow the Holy Spirit to increase in your life and he will revitalize you, help you overcome your reluctance, and transform you into a brave-hearted witness for Christ Jesus.
ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR
LIFE AND YIELD TO HIM AT EVERY TURN.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
