Thought For Today: “Holy Spirit Power”
Jesus promised the same power of the Holy Spirit that came upon Mary will be the same power that will come upon those who are His disciples.
“The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy—the Son of God.” (Luke 1:35)
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.” (Acts 1:8)
It was such a promise that the disciples they knew they needed for what lay ahead, and so they acted upon Jesus’s command.
“Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.” (Luke 24:49)
And we see the results.
“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)
And Peter proclaimed to the crowds that gathered. “But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: ‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams.’” (Acts 2:16-17)
