Empowered by the Spirit
Scripture Reading: Colossians 3
Before His ascension to heaven, Jesus promised His followers that He would send a Helper who would be with the believers forever. Jesus instructed them to stay in Jerusalem until they had received the power of the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Spirit's job is to empower us Christians to progress in our spiritual lives. Far too many Christians find themselves on a spiritual treadmill. They're working up a sweat with religious activities, but still remain in the same place spiritually.
If your life seems powerless right now, you may have a connection problem between you and the Holy Spirit. The disciples were so in tuned to the Holy Spirit that they were able to write the New Testament three decades after Christ's death. The Holy Spirit - the Helper - empowered the apostles to remember.
When you have the Holy Spirit, you have all the power you need to live the Christian life.
