Word for Today:The true Source of Power.
Ministry of the Word : True Spirituality
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
“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)
There is no true source of power other than from our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. In the gospel according St John, Jesus said “without me ye can do nothing ” ( John 15:5). The power you need to function: breathe, laugh, move, eat, study, live etc, is from Him.
Jesus is the grace of God to a failing humanity. He Himself was empowered by His Father while on earth to run His earthly ministry: “How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power…” ( Acts 10:38). The knowledge, wisdom, understanding, and strength you need to excel in life is given to us through the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. However, we have to be very careful not to allow impurities to interfere with this empowerment. As we could learn from Acts 10:38, the anointing is for goodness. There is no room for evil of any form.
Unfortunately, many believers get involved in things they should not be doing, thereby draining the anointing in them. Some people even seek ‘alternative sources of power ‘ readily when they can’t easily get an answer to what they want. This is very dangerous! Every alternative source of power carries a price but the blessing of the LORD makes rich and adds no sorrow ( Proverbs 10:22)
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Dear Father, thank you for empowering us to work with you and for the grace in Christ Jesus in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
