POWER THROUGH HIS SPIRIT

Ephesians 3:16


"I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being." NIV

"That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man." KJV

Do we feel powerful as Christians? Do we even sense the power of the Holy Spirit? Remember when Jesus was with the disciples after He rose from the dead, He told them they would be saturated with the power of the Holy Spirit. This saturation of the Holy Spirit was for those who heard Him, those who were afar off, and those who would call on the name of the Lord. We have no excuse for being weak and lukewarm Christians. There should be a fire in our souls that will not be satisfied until we have shared the Gospel, shown acts of love to the unlovable, and committed our whole lives to Him. We desire the power of God through His Holy Spirit, the power that brought Jesus Christ out of the grave.

Heavenly Father, please forgive us for ignoring and minimizing the power of the Holy Spirit in our lives as Christians. Forgive us for being ineffective on a daily basis and for missing opportunities that would bring souls to Your kingdom because we did not allow ourselves to be filled with the power of Your Holy Spirit. Fill us, saturate us, Lord, with the power of Your Spirit, we pray in Jesus' name, Amen.

This is so true. Many times we act as though there was no Holy Spirit. Thank you for this wonderful reminder.
Blessings,
