The Holy Spirit Today Part Two

Luke 4:1

The Holy Spirit gives us:

  1. Direction
  2. Power
  3. Anointing (purpose)

POWER – This is dunamis (dynamite, dynamic, progress, change, force. Jesus operated in the power of the Holy Spirit and so can we!

A Christianity without the power of God is an incomplete Christianity – II Timothy 3:1-5 – Where our power and strength ends, God’s power and strength begins – II Corinthians 12:9 – The power of God isn’t about manifestation but rather about demonstration. II Corinthians 2:4

3 Reasons We Need the Power of God in our Lives

  1. We need boldness, for our Faith will be tested. – Mark 14:66-72; Acts 4:13,31 – The difference in Peter was the Holy Spirit – the last part of Acts, boldly and without hindrance.
  2. We need strength, Satan’s power is real. – Ephesians 6:10-12 – To stand against the schemes of the enemy – We can come out of the season stronger than we came in by the power of the Holy Spirit
  3. We need transformation, we can’t change ourselves – Romans 7:15-18, 24-25; 8:1 – Through the spirit of life we are set free from ourselves, the law of sin and death – Romans 8:11 – God can change us! Hallelujah!
