For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. Romans 8:5-9
There are people out there today, even within the Christian believing world that wrestle with their lives. Injustice. Pain. Loneliness. Desperation. A society that doesn’t know right from wrong anymore. Families torn apart.
Where do we find the answer for our pain. We can be victims, and wallow in our pain and blame it a corrupt system, or we can look to the only one who can do something about it. Jesus Christ.
Jesus makes ALL things news. He may not fix systems, he may allow corruption in government, he may allow people to war against each other for right or wrong. If we have within our hands to fix things, then we should, but we must also acknowledge that there is a POWER greater than anything we have.
How do we receive POWER? Not temporal power, but SPIRITUAL POWER? Raise the dead, heal the sick, bring in righteousness, seek blessings for those in need?
Jesus told the Apostles in Luke 24:49, “And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.” This power was poured out on the Day of Pentecost when 120 disciples praying in an upper room, and more received the POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST, which is Jesus Christ inside you, the hope of glory.
I could spend all day telling you the miracles I’ve seen in 22 years of living for God. People healed of diseases, people’s minds healed, lives transformed, the poor and destitute lifted up, drug addictions, alcoholics and women in sin changed forever.
If you want your life changed, if you want to forsake your anger, your hurt, your pain, and receive life, pray today that God will pour out His spirit upon you and lead you to a Holy Ghost filled church today*. You will know you have received the Holy Ghost when you have spoken in other tongues the way they did on that day so long ago. It is the evidence of God’s spirit.
* The apostolic pentecostal church preaches the power of the Holy Ghost. This could be an independent church, a church of the Worldwide Pentecostal Fellowship, United Pentecostal Church, Apostolic Assemblies, and related church bodies. They will teach you biblical salvation and pray with you to receive God’s spirit.
