22 Jul Power from on High – 7/22/20
Luke 24:49 – “I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”
So often our flesh mixed in with our individualistic culture wants the pride and satisfaction of doing things our own way and in our own strength. But that attitude is the complete opposite of what God has called for us. God has promised us “power from on high” which is his power in the form of the Holy Spirit. The transforming, miracle producing, and death raising power of Christ is within us. We are called to go boldly with this power to share the Gospel, help the poor, and comfort the sick.
God, we thank you for your Holy Spirit and the power that lives within us. Thank you for empowering us and not leaving us to figure out life on our own strength. Renew us day by day to go boldly where you call us to go to share the good news of Jesus. Amen.
