“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
When the Holy Spirit of God comes then we receive our power. Thus after we receive our power then we can become witnesses. So often many attempt to witness but have no power. That is like trying to turn a lamp on, without it being pluggin into the socket. As a Christian, you should always be pluggin into the “socket” which is Jesus Christ and from Him we receive the power that comes from the Holy Spirit. Today, do not walk around trying to turn your proverbial lamp on which has not been plugged into Jesus, your eternal power source. For in John 15:5, He says, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
Let us pray, Lord we thank you for this day, one we have never seen before and one we shall never see again. We beg you to forgive us for all of our sins. God we pray that we stay plugged in to you today. We pray that we receive the power which comes from your Holy Spirit today so that we can be your witnesses forevermore. Help us to be able to do as your Word says in Mathew 5:16 “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” In Jesus name we pray. Amen
Have a blessed day!
