Your Power Through Jesus Christ

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.
There’s a popular singing competition television show today called The X Factor. The show gets its title from a term that’s used to denote a certain quality or qualities that cause a person to rise above the ordinary and become a star.
Years ago, I picked up a book at the bookstore entitled The X Factor: A Quest for Excellence written by George Plimpton. In it, the author surveyed athletes looking for that extra something in their lives that propels them to victory. He also looked at those who are successful in the business world, in politics, and in the arts to see just what it was that took them from ordinary to extraordinary.
As a Christian, you have the X factor! Do you know what that something extra is? It is the divine dynamic of knowing God! It’s that something extra that you have in Him when you pray and seek His face. It’s the power of His Holy Spirit living inside of you.
Very often, I see Christians who settle for such an ordinary life. They think, “I’m not talented or brilliant, so I guess I’ll just let life happen to me.” Well, if you’re in Christ, you have what it takes to live powerfully through the Spirit. So take the leap and start living boldly for Jesus today!
IN CHRIST, YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO RISE ABOVE THE ORDINARY. SO SURRENDER TODAY AND START LIVING BOLDLY FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD!

Unlock the Power of Persistent Prayer
If you’re like most Christians, you would agree that prayer is a vital part of a vibrant spiritual life. But when it comes to your personal prayer life, perhaps there’s a difference between what you say and what you do.
To me, the reason for this is clear: most people don’t really know how to pray. That’s why I want to send you my brand new book, The Promise of Persistent Prayer. In this book I show you how you can tap into the promises of God and open the floodgates of His blessings. And I share with you the one thing that really matters when it comes to making your prayers heard.
The Promise of Persistent Prayer is my gift to thank you for your donation to PowerPoint this month, so please request your copy when you give. It’s my hope that this book will show you how to break out of the ordinary and unlock the power of prayer in your life!
