Holy Spirit Power

Peter is one of my favorite Bible personages. We all know the story of how he denied knowing Jesus 3 times. He even ran from a little girl who was accusing him of being a follower of Jesus. BUT, a few months later, when the Holy Spirit was poured out on the church (Acts 2) we see a man who takes the lead in proclaiming publicly that Jesus Christ is Lord. He stepped up before the crowd of unbelievers and gave such a great sermon that thousands came to know Jesus as savior. What happened to this total coward? Simply put, it was Holy Spirit Power!  We often think that those amazing stories in the Bible can’t happen today but they do! All over the world there are testimonies of The Holy Spirit Power enabling people to do all kinds of amazing things as part of God’s plan. In fact I would say that apart from the Holy Spirit we really can’t do anything for God’s kingdom. Without the Holy Spirit we may preach, teach, pray for healing and do all kinds of cool religious actions but are we really operating according to God’s plan? I don’t think so. We need to yield our spirit to the Holy Spirit of God and prepare for our own “Pentecost” today!

“And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven.”  Luke 24:49  (NLT)

Stay blessed,
