Any presentation on the Holy Spirit begs for the inclusion of some recognition of his power! Especially since the Lord promised his disciple that the one thing they would surely experience when he came was power. Reflect on Jesus’ words to his disciples.
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be my witnesses both in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the remotest parts of the earth.”
From New Testament times until now, men and women of faith have been endowed with the undeniable power of the Holy Spirit. Believers have been empowered to stand in the mist of the most difficult times and situations, unashamed and unafraid. Men and women of faith have experienced the kind of dynamic changes that cause those around them to be amazed and astonished.
This Week… Endowed With The Dynamic Of Personal Transformation
The Holy Spirit changes us; his intention when he begins to work in our lives is to make a significant difference in us. He wants to help us remove negative and wrong things from our lives, and help us put positive and right things in our lives. The Holy Spirit helps you not only to become what you ought not to be, but also to become what you ought to become-more and more like the Lord Jesus.
Second Corinthians 3:18 speaks very convincingly of the Holy Spirits positive purpose to change our lives and make us like the Lord Jesus. It says, “And we who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.”
When people start saying you are a better person, or that you are a different person than you used to be, find a place somewhere alone with the Holy Spirit and tell him, “What a difference you’ve made in my life.”
