The Power Within - Acts 1

God's Spirit works in every believer. He does not limit Himself to pastors and missionaries. If you've received Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, then residing within you is the same great power that raised Christ from the dead (Romans 8:11) The Holy Spirit pours His energy into creating godly character in all who follow the Lord.


The fruit of the Spirit is so named because it is the character and conduct that the Holy Spirit produces in believers. These are qualities that we can't generate consistently on our own. The most powerful message we can give isn't a testimony or sermon; it is the life we live when the pressure is on, temptation is tremendous, or we are buried under an avalanche of problems.


What the world most needs to see in this modern culture is godly families loving one another, business people working with integrity and frugality, and young men and women who choose moral purity. In a word, the world needs to be exposed to believers who are obedient.


By showing peace instead of anxiety or practicing patience rather than speaking a sharp word, a Christian bears witness to the beauty of the gospel. We attract unbelievers to Christ through our words and deeds. They may turn down a doctrine, but they cannot ignore a righteous life.


The strongest gospel message does not come from a pulpit. The most powerful witness for Jesus Christ where you work, where you live, and where you relax is you. Submit to the Holy Spirit's work, and He will produce a great harvest of spiritual fruit in your life.



Current Sermon Series
      Whether we’re nostalgic or overscheduled, this season can find us longing for a simpler time... when the world seemed full of wonder, when joy was wholehearted and love was unrestrained. Let’s re-discover what it means to live and believe Like a Child.


Last Week:
      God's grace is amazing. When God forgives us of our sins, he removes it from us and he remembers it against us no more. It should effect us enough to change us in 2 ways. It should change our heart's affections, and our life's direction.
      Sunday's message is available for streaming or for download on our
sermons page, or by visiting us on iTunes.


Next Week:
      To close out our series on Like a Child, we will be covering God's omnipotence from a child's viewpoint. The message will be called, My God Can Do Anything.
