In the beginning there was power. The power, the Holy Spirit, hovered over the face of the deep. He assisted God in the production of light. Genesis 1:1-3
The power of the Holy Spirit was the message Jesus left with the disciples. When you receive this power, the privilege of being a witness unto me will be yours as well. Acts 1:8
Use this power and privilege to build yourself up on your most holy faith. Praying in the Holy Spirit empowers you to help others become empowered as well. This is the power that keeps you in the love of God.

Power- the ability to do something or act in a particular way, especially as a faculty or quality. The capacity or ability to direct or influence the behavior of others or the course of events.
Privilege- a special right, advantage, or immunity granted or available only to a particular person or group.
What a fellowship!! We have been given power through the leadership of God’s Holy Spirit that lives on the inside of us. But do we really realize what a privilege we have been given? Just to be able to know that the same power that assisted God when He said, let there be light, is the same power that lives on the inside of us. Amazing!! We have received the gift of the Holy Spirit. He leads us and guides us, He reminds us of the word of God, He prompts us to yield when we are going astray. That is power and privilege combined. Today, may we take another look at the gift sent back to us from the presence of God on the day of Pentecost. The gift that keeps on giving, The Holy Spirit. Don’t ignore His presence. Don’t resist His power. Don’t dismantle the privilege that is yours and mine. Own it! Be blessed by it. Bless others with it. In Jesus Name. Angels All Around You
