“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.” Acts 1:8
News flash: Living a life for Christ is hard. Separating yourself from worldly influences is hard. Reaching out and ministering to the people around us – yep, you guessed it: hard.
Jesus knew all of this. He knew that once He left, we (imperfect) beings would be left to fend for ourselves in this (fallen) world. In His infinite wisdom, He did not leave us alone. He sent the Holy Spirit to lead, guide, teach, and empower us to be victorious in our lives.
What do you need power for today? It’s right there, already in place. Reach out to the Holy Spirit and let Him be the driving force behind all you do.
You can’t make it alone, but with Him in your corner, all things are possible.
