You Can Do It!
Synopsis: God is confident “You Can Do It!” because God knows the power of the Spirit within you comes from Him. Jesus is confident “You Can Do It!” because Jesus knows the power of the Spirit within you. The power of the Spirit energies all who trust in the might of God the Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
In the stories of our Old Testament the Spirit power of God dwelt on only a few (like Zerubbalel, Moses and the 70 he chose plus 2 more God included). In the New Testament the Spirit of God’s might and power came on all who believe. The power and might of the church does not exist in its denominational structure, nor by the might of its buildings and institutions, nor the number of its membership or size of its offerings, nor from any program it institutes. The power of the church is found in the presence of the Spirit of God flowing through all who believe.
You, yes you who sit in the pews and fill the many roles of service in the life of the congregation. Yes you who are chosen of God for service to the kingdom of Heaven. You can do what God has called and gifted you to do, not because of who you are, but because of the Spirit of God flowing through you. You Can Do It!
It’s Time To Get Started! What Are You Waiting On?
