The Power Connection
“Receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit is an experience, but my question to you is, is your life being transformed? His presence and power will change your life in ways you did not think possible. ”
It is of utmost importance that we receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. In receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit, The Spirit of adoption comes in dwells within us. As the Holy Spirit dwells within our hearts, we are empowered to live by the very Spirit of God. It is through Him that we are given the power and the authority to be the church to the unchurched.
“And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”Acts 2:4 NKJV “For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.” The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,”Romans 8:15-16 NKJV
