Holy Spirit – Power for Oneness

Session 3 | Episode 1

The Christian Life

The Christian life isn’t difficult, it is impossible to live it in our own strength!

We just cannot be the husband or wife we really want to be, in our own strength!God knows we cannot, so He made provision for us to enable us to be obedient Christians.

Jesus had taught His disciples for three years and in spite of that He knew they would still not be able to do His work. So He told them to go to Jerusalem and wait for the Holy Spirit Who would equip them to live like Christians, and Who would enable them to be his disciples to the ends of the earth.

As Christians we need the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit to be able to live the Christian life.

The Holy Spirit is not there to help us improve our acting ability, but to change us from the inside out!

The Spirit controlled life is the Christ controlled life when Christ lives His life in and through us in the power of the Holy Spirit.

“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”

GAL. 5:22

“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”

GAL. 5:22

Gal. 5:22 tells us what characteristics would become evident in our lives when we live under the control of the Holy Spirit: “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”

We are filled with the Holy Spirit by faith; then we can experience the abundant and fruitful life Christ promised.

In order to be filled and controlled by God the Holy Spirit, we have to be clean vessels. We should confess all known sin. By faith thank God that He has forgiven all your sins – past present and future – because Christ died for you.

Prepare yourself during this week for the filling with God’s Holy Spirit by confessing all known sin and cleansing yourself.

Next time we will discuss how to be actually filled with the Holy Spirit.
