The power of the Spirit

The power of the Spirit

Luke 4:1,14; Romans 8:9-14

Jesus is the best example of how we should live our lives. Jesus faced every temptation possible and yet was without sin. Romans 8:9-14 speaks of having the Holy Spirit living in us, being led by Him and living by the power of the Spirit.

  1. Being filled with the Spirit – It is not a one time thing. We need to be continually filled with the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 5:18). It is a continually “be being filled”. Do not stop crying out for God to continually fill you with the Spirit. We need to be filled with the fullness of God (Ephesians 3:19).
  2. Led by the Spirit – Where we are vulnerable is where the devil will hit you. When we are tempted we need to look to the Spirit to lead us through the temptation (Galatians 5:17). Temptation is not a sin, but temptation leads to sin if we stay in it (James 1:13-15). We will be tempted, but we need to turn to the Spirit to lead us. We need to keep going and keep seeking the Spirit.
  3. In the power of the Spirit – We see the power of the Spirit in the way we respond to situations. As we trust in God we overflow with the power of the Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a gift that is not just for us, we need to allow Him to leak out of us to others.
