Power Surge: Now Let The Witnesses Speak
Synopsis: What do you do as a follow up to all the excitement of Christmas? All the presents have been opened and the great reveal of what was in them is past. Church attendance is expected to be down as families are spread out visiting here and there and to be honest I originally planned to be gone myself. What we need in our lives and certainly in the life of the church is a “Power Surge.” The kind of power surge I am talking about only happens when believers get plugged into Jesus.
Throughout 2014 my sermons have come from the inspiration of a simple phrase, “Hear Him!” As we come to the close of the year I want to call your attention to Acts 1:4-11 where you will fine Jesus’ parting words to His Disciples. Right before He ascended Jesus spoke to the disciples about a “power surge” that was coming their way. They were told to wait for it and then to speak. First you have to be plugged into Jesus, then the power of the Spirit flows. Now that’s a “power surge” that will make you speak.
Scripture Text (NLT): Acts 1:4-11
