Word Of The Month

One of the most quoted verses by Spirit-filled believers is Acts 1:8

 

“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.” 

 

Most Christians want to be POWERFUL! We desire to live above the natural and move in the supernatural. We want to   defeat our enemies and overcome the troubles in life.  We wish we could live holy lives and not yield to temptation.  When we think of Empowered Living, we think mainly about ourselves.

 

Jesus makes it clear that God has another agenda when He fills us with the Holy Spirit. He wants us to be His WITNESSES throughout the world!  The Holy Spirit gives us the boldness and the wisdom to share Jesus with people, beginning with those nearest to us.

 

Many of us pray and reach out to our family members.  We desire them to know God and receive eternal life. This is God’s plan - start in Jerusalem. But don’t stop there. Go further. Extend it to our nation (Judea) and our neighbors (Samaria). God’s plan is greater -  He wants the entire world to know Jesus and be saved. He has given us the mandate and the power to fulfill this all-important task.

 

We thank God for bringing the Watoto Children Choir to hold their concert, “We Will Go”, in EL on 9 February and followed by Missions Weekend on 15 & 16 February.

 

Let’s open our minds and hearts to hear God’s call to Go to The Ends of The Earth!
