Thought For Today: “Power to Get Unstuck”
The problem with many Christians is that they are stuck between the cross and Pentecost.
What do I mean by that? It’s not that they don’t believe in Jesus, or that their faith is stuck in a rut, but that they’ve never taken their faith beyond what they see, or beyond what they believe is possible.
Further, they’ve never allowed themselves to be so full of the Holy Spirit that they cannot do anything else but to share God’s great love with everyone around them. Instead, they go back and continue to live their lives as they always have, but now as believers, but not as overcomers.
But to this malaise, Jesus, prior to His accession to heaven said, “I am going to send you what my Father has promised; but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.” (Luke 24:49)
Jesus gave us a way to live as overcomers through the infusion of power, that which is known as the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Jesus told them for them to wait for the Promise of the Father saying, “For John truly baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” (Acts 1:5)
And so, the power to overcome, is in receiving the power of the Holy Spirit. This is the power we need as Christian to get unstuck.
