ORDINARY CHURCH – Extraordinary Power

Wait, until you receive power from on high. Luke 24:49

After Jesus rose from the dead, and before He ascended to heaven, Jesus gave His disciples one directive – WAIT!  Wait in Jerusalem so that He could send them the Holy Spirit  and they could receive power from on high.  Just what kind of power did the Holy Spirit bring to this group of men who were to become the  founding fathers of the Church?

The power of the Spirit of God came and did not give those men power to take over Rome, the Spirit didn’t give them power to gain wealth and fame, nor did the Spirit give them power to destroy their earthly enemies.  What the Spirit gave them, and us, was the power to witness for the name of Jesus.  And this is why the Church exists, and this power is far greater than any other power we can have.
