The Power of Pentecost

But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere--in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8, NLT)

The power that has been given to us from on high is for the purpose of worldwide evangelism. Jesus promised that we would be witnesses. Whatever we lack in witness is made up for by the power of the Spirit. To the timid, He gives boldness. To the weak, He gives power. To the overlooked, He gives authority. The power that comes upon us makes us persuasive and magnetic proclaimers of the gospel.

No believer can say, “I don’t have what it takes to win the lost.” Every believer has been empowered to share the gospel with effectiveness.

While the Spirit’s power within us enables many spiritual manifestations and acts, the Spirit’s power upon us has been given primarily for the winning of the lost.

Allow Him to work through you. Look for an opportunity today to be a witness.
