Are you a Christian? In other words, have you repented of your sins and asked the Heavenly Father to forgive you? Have you confessed Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? If so, you’ve been cleansed of your sin. You have been given the gift of the Holy Spirit. But are you living an empowered life? You see, John the Baptist baptized people in water for the forgiveness of their sins, but in John 1:33 he explained that Jesus baptizes us in the Holy Spirit, who empowers us for daily living. “He upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon Him, this is the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.”
In Acts 1:8 Jesus said we receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon us. God’s provision for believers is Holy Spirit anointed power! If we’re trudging through life and living by our own strength, it’s time to check the pulse of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Learn more about the Holy Spirit in the Listen UP DVD or How to Live by the Divine Nature Bible study…two valuable resources to help you live an empowered life.
Thank You, Jesus, that when we come to You in repentance, confessing You as Lord and Savior, You baptize us with the Holy Spirit. Help us be mindful of the gift of Your Spirit and live by Your empowerment.
