We Need the Power of God: Pentecost Sunday

Sunday May 27, 2012

Text: John 7:37-39. You will be filled with whatever you’re hungry for. If you’re hungry for God, the Holy Spirit will flow out of you. God’s supernatural power makes things new. Be and stay teachable and be filled with the Holy Spirit and speak in tongues (Acts 19:1-6). You have to yield to the Holy Spirit. There is a reason why the power is or isn’t there: unity is needed. Thirst for unity. Call on God and expect the suddenlies from Him. Acts 2:4. The test is if you can worship when you get bad news. Be filled with the Holy Spirit to excess; be drunk in the Holy Spirit (Eph. 5:18-19). How do you have a move of the Holy Spirit? Glorify Jesus, worship Him, put Him first. You are always a new creation (2 Cor. 5:17). Every day is a new relationship with Christ. You are a product of the new creation. Forget what is behind and reach forward (Phil. 3:13-14). Stir yourself up for personal revival. (There was a time of ministry and prayer.)
