Courage from Within

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere-in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” [Acts 1:8 NLT]

Once we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and personal Saviour, the Holy Spirit comes upon us and dwells within us. From that day onward, we do not have to do anything on our own. God expects us to rely on our Helper who is the Holy Spirit to guide us every step of the way.

Jesus’ work was to establish how the people of God could be saved through His death and resurrection.

The work of the Holy Spirit is to spread the message that salvation can be found in Jesus Christ. In this regard, He partners with men by filling us with power, strength, and courage to be able to draw men unto Himself.

It takes power from God to become a Christian, but it takes another dimension of power, which comes from within us, to be able to sacrifice for the kingdom to fulfil the Great Commission. This power from within us comes from the Holy Spirit, who dwells in us and guides us into all truth. He fills us with great courage so that when we step out to share the Word of God with our family and friends, we speak nothing but the truth by reminding them of God’s great love for humanity.

Heavenly Father, help me to discover the courage and power within me to spread Your Word so all men will be drawn to you. Holy Spirit please keep working in me and guiding me to fulfill my God-given purpose, Amen.
