Acts 1:8 – But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.

You must first receive the power of the Holy Spirit to be an effective witness for Christ. You may be highly talented, intensively trained, and widely experienced, but without spiritual power you are ineffective. On the other hand, you may be uneducated, unattractive, and unrefined, yet if you be covered with the power of the Holy Spirit the world will see you as a mighty force for God.


As your pastor, I want you to experience the power of God working in your life and through your life. Ask God to give you the power of His Holy Spirit to do His perfect will this week. Then step out in faith and BE a witness for the Lord Jesus Christ to your family, your fellow students, your friends and everyone you come in contact with this week. Share with them the blessings God has given you and shown you. That is what a true witness does.
