My wife and I have a toddler. Over the past two months, we spent several weeks hoping that he’d start walking. Now that he has started, we spend days reflecting on the time when he was stationary.

He’s reached a point where he gets into everything. Anything on or near the floor is fair game. Don’t get me wrong, I’m very happy that he’s beginning to explore and discover new things. But that comes with a cost: baby proofing.

Corners of tables, cabinets, dishwasher, door handles. You name it, we’re baby proofing it. Of particular importance are the numerous power outlets we have around our place. We purchased several outlet plug covers to prevent him from “tapping into” a power source.

Sadly, the enemy has done the same thing to many believers.

To prevent exploration and the potential of tapping into God’s power source, the enemy has trivialized the importance of God’s Spirit in the lives of believers.

To put it bluntly, there are outlet plug covers on churches worldwide.

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. Acts 1:8

These are Jesus’ last words recorded in scripture. Over 2,000 years have passed since he spoke those words. Yes, men and women “hear from the Lord” all the time. And yes, Jesus still speaks to us. But there’s just something special about these words. They reassure us that Jesus left us with two things…power and witness.

We all love to hear about power. Please understand though—it’s impossible to yield power without first yielding to his Spirit.

Jesus tells the believers in Acts, “The task I have for you is impossible…in your own power. You can’t do this alone. Not by power, nor by might, but by my Spirit.”

No wonder the psalmist was adamant about God not taking his Spirit away from him. The power of the Spirit created an inner witness in these believers. And that inner witness created an outer witness that impacted the world. An outer witness that demonstrated the last task Jesus assigned his followers…be witnesses to the end of the earth.

In a world where men and women desire natural power, God desires us all to tap into his supernatural power source.

The Spirit of God is available for you. He counsels, he intercedes, he creates, he speaks, he reminds and he consoles. Most of all, he empowers.

What are you waiting for?

Tap into the power source today.

Only then will you be able to impact the world with the message of Christ.

    Glory!What a ministration.

  2. Stafford Bajiko says:

    The truth is we all have to born again be Jesus true follower. “Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
    4 Nicodemus *said to Him, “How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born, can he?”
    5 Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.”
    (JOHN 3:3-5)

    And so the question is: Have you received the Holy Spirit since you beleived?
    “He said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” And they said to him, “No, we have not even heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.”
    3 And he said, “Into what then were you baptized?” And they said, “Into John’s baptism.”
    4 Paul said, “John baptized with the baptism of repentance, telling the people to believe in Him who was coming after him, that is, in Jesus.”
    5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
    6 And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they began speaking with tongues and prophesying.”
    (ACTS 19:2-6)

    He has shown us the way to heaven through the waters of baptism
    “After being baptized, Jesus came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove and lighting on Him”
    (MATTHEW 3:16)

    Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
    (JOHN 14:6)
    Jesus shows us the way, Jesus words are true and He is the truth, and in Him there is life through His Spirit.

    Receive the Spirit of God now with the proof of Speaking with new tongues
    Proof: Mark 16:16-7, 1 Corinthians 14:2, Acts 2:4

    HOLY SPIRIT is the promise of God.
    Joel 2:28 , Acts 2:17-21
    Acts 2:38-39.

    For Holy Spirit is God’s stamp of ownership.
    Ephesians 1:13-14,2Corinthians 1:22, Ephesians 4:30, Revelation 7:3-8

    The world is changing, people has forgot all about God and rely on their own understanding. Signs of times.
