Need Some Power?

Power...Some people spend their entire life trying to get more, often at the expense of other people. It becomes an addictive drug that can cause people to say and do just about anything to get more.

But believers have an inexhaustible supply of the greatest power source ever imagined. Paul writes in his letter to the Ephesians that God can do more than we can ever imagine (Eph. 3:20a). The interesting thing is that that is where most folks stop. They don't read the rest of that verse that says God will do more than we can imagine,"according to the power that works in us." (Eph 3:20b).

Paul is telling us clearly that God uses the power that is in us, the same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead. In Acts 1:8 God told them to the disciples to wait in Jerusalem until they received the power of the Holy Ghost. When that Power came upon them in Acts 2:4, they were suddenly a Power source that God could use to radically change the world. That Power was inside them and they could be vessels used by God to do more than they could ever imagine.

It's still available today. And God is looking for vessels that have that Power source so He can use them. Let Him use you. Get and stay full of the Holy Ghost. Be a vessel that He can work through. You have absolutely nothing to lose...except not effecting the world around you.
