The Power of the Holy Spirit
Topic: Sunday Gathering Passage: Mark 16:14–16:18, Matthew 28:18–28:20, Acts 1:4–1:8
The mission Jesus has entrusted to his people is simply impossible for us to accomplish on our own! Many of us can easily reduce following Jesus to simply abiding by his ethical teachings, but did you know that Jesus also said that his followers would be marked by miraculous signs and supernatural power?
Mark's account of the Great Commission boldly proclaims that all kinds of signs will accompany those who believe - casting out demons; speaking in new tongues; supernatural protection; healing the sick.
That doesn't sound like a religion of principles - that's a relationship of transforming power, and it's why Jesus told his disciples to wait for the coming of the Holy Spirit, who enables and empowers us to walk in the extraordinary footsteps of our Saviour!
