Word for Today
The Word (78)-Empowered for goodness
“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him” ( Acts 10:38).
If you have received the Holy Spirit, then you have been empowered for goodness. Anointing by the Holy Spirit is the source of empowerment. When our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was anointed by His Father , He went about doing good. Unfortunately, there are many people in the house of God with reprobate minds who are mixing the anointing of God with evil. This is ungodly. Remember, Gehazi in 2Kings Chapter 5 :1-27.
“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” ( Acts 1:8).
Do no evil to anyone with the anointing you have received. Avoid greed. Avoid worrying. Be truthful, honest, just and fair:
“Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give” (Matthew 10:8).
Father, please empower me mightily and use me for your goodness in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
