How Can You Tap into the Holy Spirit’s Power?
Do you desire boldness in your witness for Christ? Has your prayer life become dry and one-dimensional? Do you feel that you are lacking something in your spiritual walk? Is the world turning you upside down instead of you turning your world right side up?
This promise for power from the Holy Spirit was not just for the believers of the early church. It is for you, as well. In other words, there is a dimension of power available to the believer today that is not automatically ours! After receiving the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, Peter told the crowds gathered around the house, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call” (Acts 2:38–39).
We do not need to go to Jerusalem to receive the Holy Spirit’s power—nor do we have to wait for it.
Pentecost does not need to be repeated—it needs to be appropriated.
God wants to make you into a powerful representative for Him. Ask God to empower you with His Holy Spirit and to show you how you—like the believers in the early church—can turn your world upside down.
