Empowered by the Spirit

If you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. – Colossians 3:1

Before His ascension to heaven, Jesus promised His followers that He would send a Helper who would be with them forever. Jesus instructed them to stay in Jerusalem until they had received the power of the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit’s job is to empower us Christians to progress in our spiritual lives. Far too many Christians find themselves on a spiritual treadmill. They’re working up a sweat with religious activities but remain in the same place spiritually.

If your life seems powerless, check your connection with the Holy Spirit. The New Testament writers were so tuned to the Holy Spirit that they were able to write their Gospels and letters three to six decades after Christ’s death. The Holy Spirit— the Helper—empowered them to remember.
