HELP US TO BELIEVE THERE IS GREATER IMPACT TO BE MADE THROUGH US.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
Jesus said with absolute certainty that His followers would be His witnesses to the end of the earth. What gave Jesus this confidence? It was not the ability of the disciples, but the power of the Holy Spirit. The degree to which a church is able to impact a community is directly related to the amount of power that church possesses. A church full of people who are filled with the Spirit of Christ has enough power necessary to change the world, let alone a community. We believe we can make a greater impact in this community because we believe the Spirit of Christ is able; this is the Spirit who abides in us!
Father, help me to recognize the power available to those who are in Christ. Help me trust, not in my own abilities or resources, but in the power of the Holy Spirit who has been given to me.Help me to believe that SouthlakeBC can make a greater impact in this community by the power of the Spirit of Christ.
Do you believe the Holy Spirit provides our church sufficient power to transform this community? Do you believe there is greater impact to be made in our community through us? Are you drawing upon the power of the Holy Spirit, walking in the Spirit, and being careful not to quench the Spirit? Believe there is more to be done here and trust that, by the power of the Spirit, we can make a greater impact for the Lord Jesus Christ.
