Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Here in Acts chapter 1 the resurrected Christ tells His disciples that they are soon to receive the Holy Ghost. This Spirit of God will bring to them personally the power (strength and ability) to be witnesses concerning Him. Those who have a desire to stand up in their present age and live for and acknowledge their Saviour are promised that the Spirit of God will indwell them and enable them to be the witnesses they long to be. This promise is fulfilled in a few short days and the power of God in the lives of Christ's followers is evident and unmistakable throughout the remainder of the record found in the Acts of the Apostles.
This Godly power is still available and in operation today. Every true Christian has within him or her the same Holy Ghost, and thus the same power to stand for their Saviour. It is my desire and goal to use this opportunity to do just that; to testify of the grace, power and love of my Lord Jesus Christ. Jesus is EXACTLY who He and The Father say He is. Lord willing, we will take a few minutes each week to take an honest look at this truth.
