Acts 1-8

Acts 1:8
” 8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”

We will receive power…. What does that look like? I don’t think we really know today.  The power of the Holy Spirit is best leveraged by faith. Without faith, what does the Holy Spirit have to work with? Christ chided the disciples for their lack of faith (Matthew 17:20); where would ours rank?

The power of the Holy Spirit is to radically change the world.

That, however, starts with you and me. It starts with being able to, at a minimum, allow the Holy Spirit to radically change your life. If it’s not working, check your faith level, check your ears. Are you listening to and trusting in the Holy Spirit, or are you trying to get the Holy Spirit to listen to you? If your life isn’t working like you want it to, maybe God is saying “I’m not your co-pilot, I’m the freaking pilot. When you’re tired of crashing your plane I’ll fly you where I want you to go”. I’ve crashed many planes and it seems I keep buying new ones. Argh!

How strong is your faith?

Are you willing to be radically transformed? Are you willing to do the work He wants you to do? Are you willing to give up control?

How strong is your faith?
